6181...Silvio Berlusconi Gets 7 Years

They don't play in Italy; former Prime Minister or not if you get convicted you are going down.  Hard.

Reuters breaks the news that "A Milan court sentenced Italian former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi on Monday to seven years in prison after convicting him of paying for sex with a minor but he will not have to serve any jail time before he has exhausted appeals. With two appeals possible, it could be years before a verdict is final and Berlusconi lawyers announced they would file an appeal against what his counsel Niccolo Ghedini called a 'completely illogical' verdict."

Mr. Berlusconi is 76 so there is a good chance that he will get promoted, that is Catholic for die, before his appeals are exhausted.
