Who wants to be a cheater?
The week's news at a glance.
Three people were found guilty this week of cheating their way to the top prize on Britains TV quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Charles Ingram won 1 million pounds ($1.5 million) by correctly answering a series of increasingly difficult questions. He didnt do it alone, though, the court found. His friend, Tecwen Whittock, also a contestant on the show, helped him identify the correct answers by coughing in codeusing 19 different coughs. His wife, Diana Ingram, designed the scheme. The three were given only suspended sentences, but they have to forfeit the prize money and pay about $20,000 each in fines.
