San Diego County Superior Court Judge Robert Trentacosta had ordered that Filner be booked and released Sunday. Instead, the 71-year-old appeared at the jail and was photographed and fingerprinted by 9 a.m.

Filner on Tuesday pleaded guilty to felony false imprisonment and two counts of misdemeanor battery. Prosecutors did not seek to require bail.

Trentacosta ordered a probation report be done before the Dec. 9 sentencing.
