Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi Found Guilty of Tax Fraud

Italy’s former Prime Minster, Silvio Berlusconi, was found guilty of tax fraud.

He was sentenced by a court in Milan to four years in prison, but the sentence was later reduced to just one.

But, there’s no jail time for Berlusconi just yet.

His lawyers will appeal.

Berlusconi thinks he’s “the most persecuted man in history” for this and other charges.

But also, most people, even on the right, just want him to go away.
