SOHAM liar Maxine Carr was given a new identity worth £2.5million and had a lavish white wedding after being released from prison.
A look at what life was like for Carr after her sentence revealed that she went about as normal – seemingly with little afterthought for the horrendous crime she helped cover up.
After serving just half of her jail time when she created a false alibi for her child killer boyfriend Ian Huntley, Carr was released and let back into society.
And 10 years after, in 2014 she wed in an extravagant ceremony wearing a £2,000 ivory dress.
Her new besotted boyfriend walked her down the aisle at a luxury wedding venue — watched by his horrified family.
After taking their vows, Carr and her husband posed for photos before they and their guests drank £10 bottles of sparkling wine with a three-course wedding breakfast.

The wedding is said to have cost them thousands.
Her new husband’s relatives attended the nuptials although they were said to be stunned at his decision after learning of her shameful past – despite her new identity.
Since her release from prison in 2004 it has cost the taxpayer around £2.5million to provide Carr with a new identity and police protection.
The High Court then granted Carr lifelong anonymity, preventing her new identity ever being revealed.

In August 2002, Carr told cops she was with Huntley on the night two girls, 10, went missing.
Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman had been killed by Huntley in Soham, Cambs, on August 4.
Huntley was a caretaker at their school when he horrifically murdered the friends.
But Carr had actually been at a nightclub on that night in Grimsby with another man.
Her alibi was busted when the bloke later revealed her had kissed Carr to convince her to go on a date with him.
Three days after, Huntley was charged with murder and Carr was charged with perverting the course of justice and assisting an offender.
During the search for the girls, Carr shamelessly posed for cameras with a card that had a message from one of the girls on it when she was a teaching assistant.
