Sentence for vote-buying politician extended by appeal court

Palermo, July 5 - An appeal court Friday lengthened the prison term for Sicily's former regional minister for culture Antonello Antinoro to six years. Antinoro was originally sentenced to two years and two months in jail for vote trading and buying votes from the Cosa Nostra mafia during a regional election in 2008. Prosecutors had sought an eight-year prison term before the appeal court lengthened it to six years and added a lifetime ban on holding public office on Antinoro.
