By FRANCES D'EMILIO

ROME — Italy's highest court has upheld ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi's tax fraud conviction, but ordered a review a five-year ban on public office that was part of the lower court's sentence.

The court on Thursday confirmed the four-year prison sentence, and ordered another court to determine the length of a public office ban.

This is the first time Berlusconi, a three-time former premier and billionaire media mogul, has been definitively convicted of any crime.
