Silvio Berlusconi Sentenced To Seven Years In Jail For Sex With Under-Age Prostitute At ‘Bunga Bunga’ Party

Silvio Berlusconi sentenced to seven years in jail for sex with under-age prostitute at ‘bunga bunga’ party

A Milan court on Monday convicted former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi of paying for sex with an underage prostitute during infamous “bunga bunga” parties at his villa and then using his influence to try to cover it up.

Berlusconi, 76, was sentenced to seven years in prison and barred from public office for life — a sentence that could mean the end of his two-decade political career. However, there are two more levels of appeal before the sentence would become final, a process that can take months.

Berlusconi holds no official post in the current Italian government, but remains influential in the uneasy cross-party coalition that emerged after inconclusive February elections.
