Meet Edward "Ted" Andrews

Edward “Ted” Andrews is an experienced prosecutor, a dedicated member of the community, and someone who understands hard work and fair decision making. Ted is running for Ventura County Superior Court Judge.

As a Senior Deputy District Attorney in Ventura County, Ted Andrews prosecutes violent sexual assault crimes and murder. He champions victims’ rights and holds dangerous offenders accountable. He has sought and obtained convictions at jury trial in cases where offenders committed first-degree murder, human trafficking, and multi-victim child molestation, some of the most heinous crimes. A recipient of MADD’s Prosecutor of the Year Award, Ted has taught at the Southern California Traffic College, and routinely presents on emerging issues in criminal law.

Ted is proud to be raising his family in Ventura County with his wife, and he takes his service to the wellness and security of its residents seriously. He was raised with the neighborly beliefs that everyone should have access to equitable opportunities and has the responsibility to get involved in local civics. In addition to church and school activities, Ted regularly teaches fifth-grade classes about the criminal justice system through the Project LEAD program. As a prosecutor, Ted also works on case dispositions where alternatives to incarceration are possible and appropriate. In the community, Ted works with local groups in an effort to understand issues throughout Ventura County.

No stranger to hard work, Ted has fond memories of being raised by a single mother, helping her run a handmade jewelry stand. She emphasized the importance of learning and, despite limited circumstances, Ted earned a scholarship to attend Harvard University, graduating with a degree cum laude plus in Classics. After graduating from UCLA Law School, Ted handled complex commercial litigation in private practice, where he was also proud to offer his services pro bono on behalf of Holocaust survivors, vulnerable residents, and parents finalizing adoptions, among others who needed but could not afford legal assistance. Ted was eventually able to follow the call to full-time public service by becoming a prosecutor at the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office. Ted Andrews will continue his career of public service and hard work by serving the community in the office of Superior Court Judge.
