Bob Filner, the disgraced former mayor of San Diego who was accused by more than a dozen women of sexual harassment, has been sentenced to three months of home confinement and three years of probation.

The 71-year-old pleaded guilty in October to kissing or grabbing three women at campaign events.

He was charged Monday with one felony false imprisonment charge and two misdemeanor battery charges, CNN reported.

The felony was for putting a woman in a headlock at a campaign event, and the others were for kissing a woman on the lips and for grabbing the buttocks of another, the Associated Press reported.
