SF sheriff pleads guilty to false imprisonment

San Francisco sheriff facing domestic violence charges pleads guilty to false imprisonment By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' San Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has pleaded guilty to false imprisonment in a domestic violence case.

Mirkarimi entered the plea Monday in a San Francisco courtroom. He was fined $590 and sentenced to three years of probation and a year of counseling. He will also be required to take parenting classes.

He previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence battery, child endangerment and dissuading a witness for allegedly grabbing his wife in front of their toddler son New Year's Eve.

His wife, Venezuelan actress Eliana Lopez, later denied she was the victim of domestic violence.

A three-judge panel ruled Friday that a video in which Lopez displayed bruises on her arm while tearfully describing the incident could be used as evidence.
