As a young man, Newbury turned to robbery as a means of self support to supplement his earnings. He became known as inmate #326418 when serving a ten-year sentence due to a conviction in Travis County for aggravated robbery, but on July 23, 1985, the prison system released him on mandatory supervision. Keith returned to prison less than two years later on April 8, 1987, when he received a second conviction in Travis County, this time for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. He served nearly five years of his fifteen-year sentence and received parole on March 4, 1992. He made it six years on the outside without incident, but returned to the Texas prison system on May 15, 1998, on a conviction for a single count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Keith Newbury began serving his ninety-nine-year sentence, a steep stint due to Texas’s three strikes law, which allows judges to mete out extreme sentences to repeat offenders.
