(Newser) – Former San Diego mayor and alleged equal-opportunity-groper Bob Filner has not seen the end of his troubles yet. The AP reports he pleaded guilty today to charges of false imprisonment and battery "by violence, fraud, menace, and deceit," according to the official complaint, which, the AP notes, does not elaborate on the circumstances. The charges involve just three of as many as 20 women who've accused Filner of inappropriate behavior, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He faces up to three years in prison, and will be sentenced Dec. 9
