John Wesley Ewell’s second strike conviction occurred in 1989, when a jury found him guilty of robbery. He and two others were charged with robbing a motorist in an alley. Ewell allegedly told the victim: “Don’t move if you don’t want to be hurt,” before binding the man’s hands and taking his wallet, watch and truck. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
