SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A former San Francisco supervisor has been sentenced to serve only 30 days of his one-year perjury sentence in county jail and the rest under home detention with an ankle monitor.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Kay Tsenin rejected a motion by Ed Jew's attorneys to have the entire one-year sentence served under home detention because she said that Jew deserved another dose of punishment.

Tsenin ruled that Jew should spend 60 days in jail but that he can be released in 30 for good behavior. He must also serve 2,440 hours of community service while under home detention.

Jew was sentenced in 2009 for perjury after lying about where he lived when he ran for San Francisco office.

Jew has already served five years in federal prison after pleading guilty in 2008 to extortion, mail fraud and bribery.
