Local prosecutor Courtney Marlowe filed to run for District Court judge in Raleigh on Tuesday.

Courtney Marlowe

Marlowe has served as an assistant district attorney since 2015 in the 32nd Judicial District under District Attorney Sarah Kirkman. Marlowe has successfully prosecuted numerous criminal defendants in the courts in Iredell and Alexander counties.

In her campaign announcement, Marlowe pledged to bring that same passion for justice to the courtroom if she is elected judge.

Born and raised in Alexander County, Marlowe has deep ties to the community. The daughter of Tim and Amy Marlowe from the Ellendale community, she represents the values and traditions of her hometown. She graduated from Alexander Central High School, Campbell University, and North Carolina Central School of Law. 

Candidate filing began Monday and runs through Friday, December 15. 

If elected to the bench, Marlowe said she would be tough on life-long criminals and bring sincerity and empathy to all those that enter her court.

The seat is currently held by Chief District Court Judge L. Dale Graham, who plans to retire after this term ends in 2024.

This is a judgeship assigned to a resident of Alexander County although it is on the ballot in both Alexander and Iredell counties.

Marlowe promised “to continue the legacy of fairness and integrity in the courtroom, driven by her passion for justice, conservative principles, and Christian ethos.”
