Judge: Mirkarimi's wife can extend Venezuela stay

Monday, June 18, 2012

A judge ruled Monday morning that the wife of suspended San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi can extend her stay in her native Venezuela.

Eliana Lopez will now be able to stay in her hometown until August 19. She left San Francisco with the couple's 3-year-old son on March 25.

Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor after a domestic violence incident and faces an ethics investigation that could result in his removal from office permanently. That ethics hearing starts Tuesday.
