Policeman jailed for lying under oath

A Greater Manchester Police officer has been jailed for 12 months after he lied under oath to escape a driving ban.

PC Myles Hughes, of Macclesfield, Cheshire, persuaded barman Paul Doyle to lie for him after he was caught driving over the limit in April 2010.

He claimed it was not his fault as Doyle, also 35 and from Macclesfield, had served him the wrong drinks.

Both admitted perjury and were jailed for 12 and four months respectively at Liverpool Crown Court.

My comment: At least he was caught and punished for lying, how many people get away with it?
