SAN FRANCISCO — Pressure is mounting at a tense San Francisco City Hall for the mayor and other elected officials to address the domestic violence conviction of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi.
Mayor Ed Lee remained in his office Tuesday as victim advocates and others called on him to start the process of removing the recently elected sheriff from office.
Lee's spokesman Francis Tsang says the mayor will address the issue later in the day.
Lee and Mirkarimi met for about 30 minutes late Monday after a judge sentenced the sheriff to three years of probation and ordered him to attend anti-domestic violence counseling for a year.
Mirkarimi previously pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment after bruising his wife's arm during a New Year's Eve argument in front of their toddler son.
