Filner's 3-month house arrest ends

 

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) finished three months of house arrest on Sunday, which he was sentenced to last year after more than a dozen women accused him of sexual harassment.

After resigning as mayor in August, Filner pleaded guilty to felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor charges of battery involving victims of sexual harassment.

He was also required to give up a portion of his federal pension and attend treatment.
