Like him or loath him, he could have been set up by those ill disposed towards him. Do Eyetie prozzies have Govt authenticated identity cards or carry their Birth Certificates around with them?

Lawyers don't need to be 'pets' to plead their client's case, they just need to be paid. Even Bridger had a lawyer on his side.

A pet judge may be useful.

Is that the case in Italy?
I believe (though correct me if i'm wrong) that he instigated the over 70's law while he was still in power...so Im guessing he knew he was heading for a fall at some point.

Remember, this is the country that did such a cracking job in Perugia. Despite a conviction, we were minded to remember that Italy tends to convict then acquit on appeal for any perceived irregularities in the trial, evidence, discredited witnesses etc etc.

So even though there is a conviction I doubt Berlusconi will serve time, he will have years to appeal the conviction, or any sentence imposed, while the chief witness continues to write books and appear on chat shows further discrediting any evidence she may have presented at the original trial either by earlier statement or under questioning (so much for keeping her gob shut for the sums she allegedly received for the defendants "friends").
