Correct, odds are he won't serve a single day in prison.

The sentence is valid already, fact is that the Italian legal system provides that the execution of criminal sentences is to be suspended until the time limit for appeal consumes itself (i.e. the decision ruled out by the Court becomes "res judicata").  So for the moment he can't be locked up in jail, but consider that as an additional sentence he won't be able to hold any public office nor work as CEO of a company for 5 years (which for him is probably worst than being imprisoned).  The strange thing in this case is that, suprisingly, the owner of a company has been considered guilty and sentenced, wereas the CEO of the same company has been acquitted...  Non the less, Berlusconi is known for having great taste in watches and in Italy we spoke a lot about his 500.000 € VC.
