SAN DIEGO — A Superior Court judge Monday accepted the major terms of the plea bargain of ex-Mayor Bob Filner, sentencing him to 90 days of home confinement with no jail time.

Filner pleaded guilty in October to a felony charge of false imprisonment and two of misdemeanor battery, all involving women.

Under terms of the plea bargain, Superior Court Judge Robert Trentacosta ordered Filner to serve 90 days of home confinement starting Jan. 1. He also reduced his city pension and fined Filner approximately $1,500.

The judge placed Filner on probation for three years. If he violates probation, he faces a year in jail, the judge ruled, adding that Filner cannot seek office during his probation.
