SAN DIEGO (AP) - Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has pleaded guilty to a felony and two misdemeanors for unwanted for unwanted physical contact with three women at public events.

The California attorney general's office says Filner entered the plea Tuesday under an agreement that calls for three months of home confinement and three years of probation.

He could have been sentenced to years in prison for felony false imprisonment and a year each for the two misdemeanor battery counts.

Filner resigned in August after numerous women came forward with accounts of sexual harassment.

The felony involved a woman restrained against her will at a fundraiser. The misdemeanors involved a woman who was kissed without permission and a woman whose buttocks were grabbed.

The plea deal also requires mental health treatment.
