Ross Mirkarimi Sentenced to One Day in Jail, Probation

Posted By on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 11:56 AM


Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was sentenced to one day in his own county jail for falsely imprisoning his wife, Eliana Lopez, during a New Year's Eve dispute.  He will get credit for time he has already spent behind bars.

Mirkarimi, who was arrested a few days after being sworn in as the new sheriff, will also serve three years of probation, according to new reports. Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, and in exchange, prosecutors dropped three charges, including battery, child endangerment, and dissuading a witness.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
