San Francisco -- Mayor Ed Lee gave embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi until no later than 5 p.m. today to resign or face an official misconduct charge and the possible forced removal from office, sources told The Chronicle today.

Mirkarimi was sentenced Monday to three years probation, a year's worth of domestic violence intervention classes and other penalties for pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment of his wife. He met with Lee from 4 to 4:30 p.m. Monday in the mayor's office, where he was given 24 hours to make up his mind, the sources said.

The mayor's office said Lee is expected to make a public announcement late this afternoon.
