Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been found guilty of having sex with an underage prostitute, The Associated Press reports. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and is barred from holding any public office for the rest of life.

The charges against Berlusconi, 76, stem from a 2010 party where prosecutors said he had sex with Karima el-Mahroug, known as Ruby, who was 17 at the time. Both parties denied the allegations, but in  a different trial, El-Mahroug testified that after each party, Berlusconi gave her up to 3,000 euros. El-Mahroug failed to show up for her testimony in Berlusconi's trial and was eventually dropped as a witness.
