Victim Impact Program (VIP) which specializes in the prosecution of sex crimes, domestic violence, elder abuse, and child molestation and abuse.

Ken’s service to the community doesn’t end there. Ken has proudly taught fifth grade students every week for  eight years in the LADA Project LEAD program. He teaches his students about gang intervention, bullying, tolerance and criminal justice. He holds this program near to his heart.

While in  the Hardcore Gang Division, Ken was also assigned twice to the federally funded Community Law Enforcement and Recovery Program (CLEAR) and met regularly with police, probation officers, and the citizens of Watts and Crenshaw’s Baldwin Village to improve law enforcement and community relations.


                                ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
Having graduated from the highly selective USC Gould School of Law, Ken has a solid academic foundation. He received numerous honors as well as being selected as a staff writer for the USC Interdisciplinary Law Journal. Ken graduated in the top 20 percent of his class in legal writing and research courses. He also graduated from USC as an undergraduate, earning two bachelor’s degrees, magna cum laude, one in Cinema-Television Production from the top ranked USC School of Cinematic Arts and the other in Political Science.  Ken earned the honor of being designated a USC Renaissance Scholar for excelling and earning dual degrees in two divergent fields of study at the same time.


                                FAMILY LIFE
Ken is a lifelong resident of Southern California and a seventh generation Californian. He is above all a loving husband and proud father of two sons, a daughter, and a baby on the way.  Ken’s children would argue his best talents are playing the “tickle monster” and his reigning title in the Disney Princess game. His best friend and wife is a former prosecutor herself, and currently practices law as a special education attorney fighting to make sure special needs children get equal education and opportunity. 

In his spare time, Ken enjoys traveling with his family, running marathons, playing guitar, comedy, film, and swimming.

Ken humbly seeks your support in his effort to achieve a life long dream. Ken believes strongly in a fair judicial process and would work long and hard each day if afforded this opportunity. Please remember to vote for Ken Fuller on election day.
