July 5, 2013 at 2:45 PM

MILAN, Italy, July 5 (UPI) -- An Italian court said it will decide whether to uphold prison sentences for three people who provided prostitutes at the home of ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi.

The prosecution's request for seven-year sentences for former talent scout Lele Mora, former Lombardy regional councilor and Berlusconi dental hygienist Nicole Minetti and television news anchorman Emilio Fede will be decided July 19, the Milan court announced.

In a related trial, Berlusconi was recently found guilty of paying for sex with an underage prostitute, and abusing his power to cover up the matter. He received a seven-year sentence, which he said he would appeal, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Friday.
