SAN DIEGO (AP) — A three-month house arrest for San Diego's former Mayor Bob Filner is ending.

Filner's confinement ended Sunday, fulfilling a sentence for felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor charges of battery involving victims of sexual harassment, his lawyer Earll Pott told local media.

San Diego's first Democratic leader in 20 years resigned in August after less than nine months in office amid a torrent of sexual harassment allegations from numerous women.

Filner had to stay in his downtown residential building and was subject to searches and visits at any time from his probation officer.

Pott told U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1kAlmwL ) that officials did not get the GPS monitoring equipment set up until a week after the target date, which moved the day for his release to Sunday.

Filner pleaded guilty to a felony for manhandling a woman at a fundraising event on March 6, 2013.

He also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor battery charges, one in April when he kissed a woman without her consent at a "Meet the Mayor" event at City Hall, and the second in May when he grabbed a woman's buttocks at a cleanup event

The former congressman has been ordered to serve three years of probation.
