Italy’s former PM silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to seven years behind bars for having sex with an underage prostitute and for abuse of power.

Belusconi has been also barred from holding public office, CNN informs.

Prosecutors had argued that Berlusconi had sex 13 times with underage dancer Karima el Mahroug and abused his position when he intervened in May 2010 to get her released from jail, where she was being held on charges of theft.

Berlusconi can appeal the sentence.

Last month, an Italian appeals court in Milan upheld a four-year prison sentence for Berlusconi, who was convicted of tax evasion by a lower court last October.
