Milan, May 13 - Silvio Berlusconi's defense lawyer
on Monday said prosecutors' request for a six-year combined jail
term for the ex-premier in his sex trial in Milan was "very
high".
"Especially when compared to the historical precedent,"
said Nicolo' Ghedini.
Prosecutors also called for Berlusconi to be banned for
life from holding public office.
Berlusconi is charged with allegedly having sex with an
underage prostitute known as 'Ruby' and allegedly abusing his
position to spring her from a police station on an unrelated
theft claim.
The three-time premier and media magnate was facing maximum
possible terms of three years and 12 years respectively.
Berlusconi and Ruby deny having sex and the ex-premier
claims the case is the latest example of allegedly left-wing
prosecutors trying to hound him from office.
Prosecutors told the court there was "no doubt" Ruby was a
prostitute and had sex with Berlusconi.
