"Jack Sparrow. Be it known that you have been charged, tried, and convicted for your willful commission of crimes against the Crown, said crimes being numerous in quantity and sinister in nature, the most egregious of these to be cited herewith... piracy, smuggling, falsification of Letters of Marque and Reprisal, impersonating an officer of the British Royal Navy, impersonating an officer of the Spanish Royal Navy, impersonating a cleric of the Church of England, sailing under false colors, arson, kidnapping, looting, poaching, brigandage, pilfering, depravity, depredation, and general lawlessness, and for these crimes, you have been sentenced to be, on this day, hung by the neck until dead. May God have mercy on your soul."
―Town Clerk reading Jack Sparrow's sentence[src]

This man was the town clerk of Port Royal. When Jack Sparrow kept his appointment with the gallows, the town clerk was present at his hanging at Fort Charles. The clerk gave Jack his sentence while reading aloud the notorious pirate's numerous crimes. However, despite the clerk announcing the death sentence, Jack was saved by Will Turner.
