The three defendants have been found guilty on a majority verdict of 10 to 1 of attempting to win £1 million on "Who wants to be a millionaire?" via a series of "well timed" coughs. The major and his wife have been given 18 month sentences suspended for 2 years and a £15,000 fine; their "friend" got 12 month sentence suspended for 2 years and a £10,000 fine.
