Lynee,
A lot of info about trials at the Old Bailey is at TNA in Kew, see their link http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/research-guides/o.... For the prisoner at Wormwood Scrubs, I've checked the LMA leaflet online and annoyingly it does appear that records for Wormwood Scrubs are not available for the dates you need, either at the LMA nor at TNA. The only way to find anything i think would be to do a speculative search for Albert Sandell in the Middlesex criminal registers and/or calenders of prisoners if they exist for this date. Once you have worked out which court tried him, you could look for remaining court records in quarter session or assize records, again, if they exist for the dates you want. Have you found Albert on the 1891 census? Was he definately 'out' on that one? You would need to try and narrow down the number of years to do any speculative search. Good luck with it all! :-) http://217.154.230.218/nr/rdonlyres/5b8d735b-9fcb-47f4-a9be-...
