8. BERLUSCONI WINS RUBY SEX CASE APPEAL
Silvio Berlusconi, the former prime minister of Italy, has had his conviction for sex with an underage prostitute overturned. A Milan court found that he had not, after all, paid to have sex with Karima El-Mahroug, a 17-year-old nightclub dancer known as "Ruby the Heartstealer". Berlusconi is performing community service for tax fraud.
