He served four and a half years in prison before those convictions were overturned in 1996. In 1999, he pleaded guilty to a more limited set of wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud counts, and was sentenced to the time he had already served.

Keating was born on December 4, 1923 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at the University of Cincinnati and at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Keating married Mary Elaine Fette in 1949. They had six children.

Keating died aged 90 on March 31, 2014 in his home in Phoenix, Arizona after having been ill for several weeks.[1]
