    Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who pleaded guilty to several criminal charges earlier this week, went through the formal booking and release process in jail Saturday morning, officials confirmed.

    According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Filner was booked at 7:11 a.m. and released at 8:57 a.m. at Central Jail in downtown San Diego.

    Per the criminal charges he pleaded guilty to earlier this week, Filner was charged with felony false imprisonment by violence and two misdemeanor counts of battery.

    His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 9.

    On Tuesday, Filner appeared in a San Diego courtroom and pleaded guilty to the three criminal charges.

    Court documents said the charges involved three victims identified only as “Jane Does 1,2 and 3.”

    At a March 6 fundraising event with Jane Doe 1, Filner admitted that he “used force to restrain her against her will and used additional force to overcome her resistance.”

    At a “Meet the Mayor” event on April 6, Filner admitted he kissed Jane Doe 2 on the lips without her consent.

    On May 25, he attended a Fiesta Island rally and cleanup event where he was asked to take a photo with Jane Doe 3. The woman said the mayor grabbed her buttocks just before the photo was taken. In court, Filner admitted the count was true.

    Under the terms of Filner’s plea agreement, state prosecutors said the former mayor will serve three years of probation, as well as three months of home confinement. He’ll also have to undergo treatment by a mental health professional while on probation.
