Sheriff Mirkarimi Pleads Guilty to Misdemeanor
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Monday, March 12, 2012 | Rachel Gordon

San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi pleaded guilty today to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment in connection with an incident in which he allegedly inflicted a bruise on his wife.

In exchange, San Francisco prosecutors dropped a domestic violence charge and two other misdemeanor counts filed in January against Mirkarimi, 50. Mirkarimi was still serving on the Board of Supervisors at the time of the New Year's Eve incident inside the couple's Western Addition home. He was sworn in as sheriff about a week later.

Under the plea agreement, Mirkarimi will be sentenced next Monday to three years' probation, one year of anger management counseling, parenting classes, 100 hours of community service and fines nearing $600.And he will be allowed to remain sheriff - at least for now.

And he will be allowed to remain sheriff

Jesus Christ. He isn't even allowed on a Little League field with a record like that.

How can he be sheriff?

Worse, imagine if he were a Republican!

the screaming would be almost as loud as it is for the game commissioner to resign...because he went hunting in Idaho, and bagged one.

But uh...there's no double standard, because Rats are always forgiven and Republicans are always beyond redemption.

At least in the sick, corrupt decrepit state of California.

No domestic violence charge so he gets to keep his guns, and I guess, his job as sheriff.
