But the jail was a terrible place, where all kinds of evil and wickedness happened. Diseases were spread throughout the jail.
Sometimes the diseases were carried by the prisoners into the courtroom and spread to the Lord Chief Justice himself. There were times when the judge became deathly ill while he was sentencing a man to death and even died before the prisoner was executed.
