Ex-San Diego Mayor Ends House Arrest in Sex Scandal

Monday, 07 Apr 2014 02:00 PM

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has completed 90 days of house arrest after his guilty plea to charges of felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery in a highly publicized sexual harassment case, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"I ask for a chance to earn your forgiveness over time based on my actions," Filner said in a statement issued to KNSD-NBC7.

The disgraced ex-politician said he had been "working hard to understand the reasons that led me here, to do whatever is necessary to correct my behavior, to become a healthier, more balanced person, and to think through what a man in my position could do to earn forgiveness and regain my integrity."

"Once again, my deepest apologies go to all those that I have hurt . . . I will continue to focus on my mental and physical health and family and private life."

As part of his sentence, Filner, 71, was confined to his home in a downtown San Diego condo. He remains on three years' probation.

Filner, a Democrat elected mayor in 2012, resigned last August after accusations that he had harassed numerous women.

Filner's former communications director, Irene McCormack Jackson, was the first woman to go public with charges against Filner. She said Filner asked her to work without underwear, wanted kisses, told her he wanted to see her naked, and dragged her in a headlock.

Filner's plea agreement says he may not contact any of his victims. He is also not allowed to seek or to hold public office.
