Judson Woodley, a criminal defense attorney in Comanche, has been appointed by District Court Judge Jason Cashon to represent Garrett Reeves, the 22-year-old suspect accused of shooting his father, Erath County auditor Kent Reeves.


Garrett Reeves has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Hood County Jail.

The shooting occurred during an altercation at Kent Reeves’ Erath County home just before midnight on April 9.


Jud Woodley is an attorney with Woodley & Dudley, a law firm with offices in Brownwood and Comanche.

The law firm’s website states he is a graduate of Tarleton State University and Texas Tech Law School.


An email to Woodley for comment on the case has not been returned.

Meanwhile, Kent Reeves continues to make an astonishing recovery.


A county official told Beneath the Surface News that he could be released from the hospital soon and is looking forward to returning to work.
