'Filthy Filner' to Be Sentenced for Harassment Today
Former San Diego Mayor Bob "Filthy" Filner (D) will be sentenced today for harassment. Filner faces one felony and two misdemeanors charges for "placing a woman in a headlock, kissing another woman and grabbing the buttocks of a third." He was pressured to resign after roughly 20 women came forward with salacious allegations of harassment and unwanted attention from Filner.
The disgraced ex-Mayor plead guilty in October, striking a deal that recommends he be placed under house arrest with three years of probation.
Filner's lawyer, Jerry Coughlan said the former mayor was "spending his days jogging, getting therapy and talking to friends."
San Diego will vote for Filner's replacement in February.
