Jane Noble 1871 Liverpool

I have a Jane Noble, born Jane Nicholson 1835 in Liverpool. In 1853 she married James Noble, a Joiner. I can find them together in most Censuses but in 1871 James is married but on his own with their children. There is an entry for a Jane Noble being held at the Main Bridewell, Dale Street Liverpool in 1871. She is down as being 'the wife of a Joiner' so I'm guessing that she is the Jane I am looking for. However I cannot find out what she was being imprisoned for. I have access to fmp but there is nothing on there. Can anyone help to find out what heinouscrime she committed?

As nothing seems to have hit the headlines it must have been a minor crime. I guess I'll never know. Thanks for looking though.

Just out of interest, the particular Bridewell she was held in is now self catering accommodation for students!
