An Italian court has sentenced former Italian Prime minister and billionaire, Silvio Berlusconi to serve one-year community service caring for the elderly. This follows his conviction for tax fraud.
The former Premier is reportedly known for his sexual antics with alleged underage prostitutes, and for holding sex orgies at official government residence with pole dancers and strippers.
However, in light of the sentence, there are some who may still feel that he got off easy, notwithstanding the humiliation that the former leader will experience.
For a lot of people, a custodial sentence of some description may have been a much more deserving sentence.
