Ross Mirkarimi Finally Gets to Kiss His Wife

This morning, suspended San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi embraced his wife Eliana Lopez for the first time in nearly five months after a judge lifted a protective order that had barred the couple from communicating or seeing each other.

The court instead issued a modified order, clarifying that Mirkarimi cannot assault, harass, or threaten his wife — things that, his attorneys noted, were blatantly obvious, according to media reports.  Nevertheless, it's the first victory for the suspended sheriff since Mirkarimi entered a guilty plea to misdemeanor false imprisonment charges in March. CBS News caught the first kiss on photo this morning.
