You Be The Jury

Full Disclosure: I think former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is a lecherous scumbag. The man has no soul, no moral compass. That said, I think his current trial is a farce. I want to know what you’d think if you were a member of the jury.

Silvio Berlusconi yesterday said he believed the then 17-year-old dancer, Karima El Mahroug, was really 24 when he was alleged to have paid her for sex in 2010. The 76-year-old former Italian leader made his claims in a Milan trial in which he is fighting charges of paying for sex with someone under age and abuse of office.

Mr Berlusconi told the court that ‘nothing vulgar or scandalous’ had ever occurred during parties at his villa in Acore, and that the now notorious phrase ‘bunga bunga’ stemmed from a joke someone had made.

Ms El-Mahroug who is widely known as Ruby Rubacuori (‘heart-stealer’) has always denied having sex with the prime minister when she was 17 – or being a prostitute. Prosecutors claim he had sex with her 13 times.

Okay, that is the gist of the story. Berlusconi is claiming he thought the 17-year old was 24. A photo of the woman is below the fold.

Okay, as a member of the jury, would you think Berlusconi’s claim holds water?

Personally, I’m voting Not Guilty. No way this woman looks 17. Thoughts?

    Looks like a nice way to spend a weekend.

    Not guilty. I’ll bet the jury will vote our way also.

    LDIV – I think this may be unanimous.

    Doc – She must have eaten her dairy as a child.

    Robert B. – Oh, most definitely.

    Billy – Instead of dumpy fat chicks.

    JT – Great film, although I saw an article somewhere that weighed the facts and said they should have arrived at a guilty verdict.

    Old NFO – Not as much of a slam dunk if it was France, but . . .

    Berlusconi made the mistake of pissing off all the right people, in the 80s, 90s and 00s.
    They’ve really wanted to get him for a long time and this is the best they’ve got.
    I hope he beats it. They probably won’t give up though. They really hate him.

    I like him.

    Not guilty for sure. Just another waste of taxpayer $ to satisfy political BS. She definitely has a lot of wear on her to be 17. I guess from now on everyone having sex will have to ask the “maiden” ” your papers please”.

    Just based on looks. Not guilty. There would be other factors for him to take into account though, at the bar did she order a scotch and wa-wa?
