Berlusconi ordered to do community service for tax conviction

Italy's Former Prime Minister will be spending a lot more time with people like this soon enough. A Milan court has ruled that Silvio Berlusconi must spend at least four hours a week in a center for the elderly for one year. He'll serve his tax fraud sentence by doing so. Something many Italians feel is just: (SOUNDBITE) (Italian) ROME RESIDENT, BARBARA FRANCAVILLA, SAYING: "I am very happy with this sentence because I certainly do not understand why he should have any kind of privileged position. If this is the penalty, even if it seems very small to me, then this is correct." The court also set travel restrictions that will limit his ability to campaign for next month's European Parliament elections.
