Ex-San Diego mayor faces money laundering charge

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A former San Diego mayor is facing charges of laundering at least $10,000.

Details of the charges against Maureen O’Connor are not publicly available ahead of a hearing today in San Diego federal court.

O’Connor was the Democratic leader of California’s second-largest city from 1986 to 1992. The two-term mayor was elected San Diego’s first female leader after eight years on the City Council. She was married to Robert O. Peterson, founder of the Jack-In-The-Box restaurant chain.

Lead prosecutor Philip Halpern has declined to comment. He is the chief of the major frauds and special prosecutions section for the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego.

O’Connor’s attorney Eugene Iredale didn’t immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.
