SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner went through the formal booking and release process at the downtown San Diego jail a day early, KGTV-TV learned Saturday.
The ex-mayor was supposed to go through the process at the Central Jail on Sunday but apparently went through it early Saturday. He finished by about 8 a.m.
On Tuesday, Filner pleaded guilty to one felony count of false imprisonment by violence and two misdemeanor counts of battery for sexually harassing three women while in office.
The plea agreement came on the same day Filner was charged in a criminal complaint by the state Attorney General's Office. The stipulated agreement calls for the former multi-term congressman to be placed on three years probation and avoid jail time, although he is expected to spend three months on home confinement.
According to the Attorney General's Office, Filner will also be barred from ever seeking or holding public office. He will also be required to undergo mental health treatment while he is on probation. If he violates probation, he would face up to six months in jail.
His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Dec. 9.
