Albert was a cutler when he was tried for stealing 48 rolls of ribbon in Sheffield. His trial was held at York Assizes and he was tried along side his brother Joseph who was also charged with the same theft. His brother Joseph received a sentence of 7 years while Albert was originally sentenced to death; this sentence was later commuted to 99 years (life) transportation.
