Italian Premier Berlusconi Faces April Trial in Underage Prostitution Case

RedTracker| Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will stand trial in April on charges of paying an underage club dancer for sex and then using his office to get her out of police custody when she was detained for theft.

A Milan judge announced that a fast-track trial is expected to begin on April 6, reports the NYTimes. The ruling follows protests on Sunday involving more than 100,000 Italian women.
