Letting Go of a Long-lived Lie

In one of the more prominent recent “that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it” cases, Vicky Pryce, 60, finally gave up in March and admitted to a judge that her husband, not she, was driving their speeding car in 2003. She was married at the time to high-ranking British government official Chris Huhne, whose license would’ve been suspended had he been driving — and so, she volunteered. The couple’s 10-year ruse inspired two trials, ending without decision. Huhne “rewarded” Pryce for her loyalty in 2010 by having an affair. The couple divorced; they’ll be imprisoned separately for perverting justice.
