Former San Diego mayor's confinement comes to end

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A three-month house arrest for San Diego's former Mayor Bob Filner is ending.

Filner's confinement was slated to end Sunday, fulfilling a sentence for felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor charges of battery involving victims of sexual harassment, his lawyer Earll Pott told local media.

San Diego's first Democratic leader in 20 years resigned in August after less than nine months in office amid a torrent of sexual harassment allegations

Filner had to stay in his downtown residential building and was subject to searches and visits at any time from his probation officer.

Pott told U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1kAlmwL ) that officials did not get the GPS monitoring equipment set up until a week after the target date, which moved the day for his release to Sunday.
