Benjamin Barker, a.k.a. Sweeney Todd, was framed by Judge Turpin.  Turpin wanted his wife.  The crime was never specifically named in the story.  It was just referred to as a "crime of foolishness."  He was sentenced to life, but escaped after 15 years.  (I may have the years wrong.  I'm too lazy to Google it.)
