oldbailey: For Accessing the Old Bailey Open Data

Fetch trial data from the Old Bailey Online API <https://www.oldbaileyonline.org/static/DocAPI.jsp>. Data is returned in an analysis-ready data frame with fields for metadata including (but not limited to) the names of the first person speakers, defendants, victims, their recorded genders, verdicts, punishments, crime locations, and dates. Optional parameters allow users to specify the number of results, whether these results contain key terms, and trial dates.
