Court Acquits Berlusconi

MILAN (AP) -- An Italian appeals court has acquitted former Premier Silvio Berlusconi in a sex-for-hire case.

The court's decision Friday also throws out his seven-year-prison sentence and lifetime ban on holding political office that were given to him by a lower court when it convicted him last year.

Berlusconi had been accused of of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and then using his influence to cover it up.
