Longtime South Coast Judge Retires

A longtime Ventura County Supervisor Court judge who created some of the county’s specialty court programs has retired.

Judge Colleen Toy White has stepped down after 23 years on the bench.

White was Presiding Judge for the county twice. She started the county’s Veterans Court, Dependency Drug Court, the Community Intervention Court, as well as some other specialty courts to provide help, instead of jail time.

Before her two decades on the bench, White served in the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office for 18 years.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
