Lawyer: San Francisco sheriff won't resign despite ethics probe looming after guilty plea
By The Associated Press

A lawyer for San Francisco's sheriff says he has no plans to resign despite the threat of an ethics probe.

Attorney Lidia Stiglich told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was asked by Mayor Ed Lee to step down after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of false imprisonment.

The charge stemmed from a New Year's Eve dispute with his wife in which her arm was bruised.

The sheriff met with Lee after his sentencing Monday. During that discussion, Lee gave him 24 hours to resign or face an ethics charge that could result in his removal from office.

Lee has declined to comment on the matter but said he would make an announcement later Tuesday.
