Woodward sentenced to prison for robberies

81st Judicial District Attorney’s Office:

On Tuesday, April 23, Jared Woodward pled guilty and was sentenced to 30 years in prison by the honorable Judge Lynn Ellison on two charges of Aggravated Robberies in Karnes and Atascosa Counties.

Woodward robbed a Shell gas station in Campbellton in Atascosa County, where he stole cash and cigarettes on July 28, 2016. On June 6, 2016, Woodward pointed a gun at a Hobson resident through the window of her garage door that led to the kitchen, entered her home, and demanded money from her purse in Karnes County.

“As a community, we expect to be safe in the security of our homes. Mr. Woodward violated that sense of trust and security. While this sentence gives our victims some sense of justice, they have forever lost that sense of security, particularly that one should have in their own home. We hope Mr. Woodward’s acceptance of responsibility relieves our victims from the stress of confronting him in the courtroom, and protects South Texas from reach of such a violent man. Thank you to all our area law enforcement agencies for working together with the District Attorney’s Office to bring this man to justice,” stated Audrey Gossett Louis, 81st Judicial District Attorney. 

Mr. Woodward is also serving a 15 year sentence for Aggravated Robbery in Live Oak County and 20 years for Robbery in Gonzales County.
