    Seems new SF Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is alleged to have abused his wife. He denies it, she denies it, but a neighbor has video, made at the wife's request, of bruises and text messages they exchanged.

    Evidence has been turned over to the SFDA by SFPD.

    Yeah, Sen. Feinstein's daughter, Superior Court Judge Katherine Feinstein said she didn't want to swear him in because it might create a potential future legal conflict should a case involving Mirkarimi be brought to her court. Judge must already know something, huh.

    Well, well, seems new SF Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is in a little doo-doo. Prosecutors are charging him with one count each of domestic violence battery, child endangerment & dissuading a witness.

    Of course he and his wife, who were married after having their first child in 2009, are saying the event was completely taken out of context.

    Of course earlier he'd called it "a private matter, a family matter."

    The good part" If he is convicted, he would have to give up his department-issued firearm and could be subjected to searches as conditions of probation.

    A toothless Sheriff...
