An armed robbery getaway driver has been spared from jail after turning Queen's Evidence
It's a bit like one of those Witness Protection Programmes, where you get a new life in return for turning Queen's Evidence

At Newcastle Crown Court, Judge John Milford told Hay that although he would receive a reduced sentence for turning Queen's Evidence
he did not feel the pimp had been completely honest and would not receive the full reduction.
Myatt pleaded guilty to conspiracy but was treated more leniently after turning Queen's evidence
Balanced against that there was his extensive co-operation with the prosecution authorities and the fact that the information he supplied, and his turning Queen's evidence
on a number of occasions, not only led to five of his partners in crime being convicted by jurors, but also led to eight others admitting their roles.
