    Then San Diego Mayor Bob Filner speaks in August after agreeing to resign at a city council meeting in San Diego.

SAN DIEGO -- Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has pleaded guilty to felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery.
The plea came Tuesday in Superior Court, weeks after Filner was forced to resign over claims of sexual harassment by numerous women.
The victims in the case were only identified as Jane Does.
The judge says the maximum sentence is three years in prison for the felony and one year for each misdemeanor, and may be served concurrently.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 9.
