Silvio Berlusconi Sentenced, Here's The AC Milan Owner's Best Pictures

Posted: Updated:

Former Italian prime minister and AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to four years in jail and barred from holding political office for three years after being convicted of tax evasion.

Berlusconi, 76, and his co-defendants were accused of buying the rights to broadcast American films and falsely declaring the payments to lower the amount of tax their Meadiaset TV firm had to pay.

Prosecutors in Milan also alleged they inflated the price of around 3,000 films and pocketed the difference, making them around €250m.

It rounds off a bad week for Milan after defeat to Málaga in the Champions League. They have won just three matches all season as they continue to smart from the summer departures of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Rossonera may be glad to see the back of Berlusconi, though but as Silvio departs for prison here are some of his more entertaining snapshots with AC.
