Pierce Roe , was Indicted for a Misdemeanor, for procuring the Escape of Sir James Montgomery , who was committed to the Custody of one Sutton the King's Messenger . It appeared that Sir James Montgomery was committed to the Custody of Sutton by a Warrant from Secretary Trenchard; and the Prisoner procured the Evidence to go and Bribe the Sentinels; and accordingly gave him Ten pound and told him what a great piece of service it would be for King James if he could effect it, and that he should not want for Silver and Gold, and he would make him a Lieutenant; and accordingly he went and Bribed the Soldiers, who let him Escape. The Fact was fully proved against him; the Jury found him Guilty .
