Bob Filner's months-long house arrest stint is over, the result of pleading guilty in December to charges of felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery regarding claims of sexual harassment, but he now faces three years of probation

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s house arrest came to an end Sunday after 90 days of home confinement.
