Bob Filner — the embattled former mayor of San Diego — was sentenced Monday to three months of home confinement and three years of probation for sexually harassing women, according to the Associated Press. Filner, 71, resigned this fall and pleaded guilty to one felony and two misdemeanors for placing a woman in a headlock, kissing another woman, and grabbing the buttocks of a third.

The sentence matches what prosecutors recommended in Filner’s plea agreement, AP reports.
