On 12 November 1888 Charles Thomas a 51 year old labourer, was charged at Clerkenwell Police-court with being drunk and disorderly. the incident happened in Crowndale-road, St. Pancras early on Sunday morning. Thomas surrounded by a crowd of onlookers kept shouting out, 'I'm Jack the Ripper'. In his defence Thomas simply said he was sorry, he was sentenced to 14 days hard labour, and was told that any man brought before the court for shouting in the street that they were the Whitechapel murderer would go to prison without the option of a fine.
