(MILAN) -- Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was ordered by a judge Tuesday to stand trial in connection to accusations he paid for sex with a minor and then used his office to cover it up.
Judge Cristina Di Censo handed down the the indictment and set a trial date for April 6 in Milan.
Prosecuters allege the 74-year-old prime minister paid for sex with a then 17-year-old Moroccan girl known as "Ruby" and that he used the power of his office to try to cover it up. Both Berlusconi and the girl deny they had sex.
