SALISBURY — Marshall Bickett has filed for re-election as a Rowan County District Court judge.
“I ask the voters for their support, and with God’s help, I will continue to work hard on their behalf,” Bickett said in a filing statement.
According to the Rowan County Board of Elections no one had filed to oppose Bickett by Monday.
Bickett was elected to his current post in November 2008. He had been appointed by the governor to his newly created judicial seat in 2007.
“Having been born and raised in Rowan County, it is an honor to have been elected by its citizens to this position,” Bickett said.
Bickett ran unsuccessfully for Superior Court judge in 2010.
As district court judge, Bickett presides over criminal, child custody, child support, civil and juvenile cases.
“As a judge, I see the problems that citizens of Rowan County have when they are the victims of crime, when their children are at risk or when their neighbors are in trouble,” he said.
Bickett graduated from North Rowan High School, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Wake Forest University School of Law.
He served as the first attorney for the county Social Services Department and then served as an assistant district attorney where he prosecuted criminal cases from 1980 until 1986.
Bickett has earned several special titles recognizing his additional education and many hours of experience that he says enable him to assist the citizens of Rowan County.
He was certified by the N.C. Bar Association as a criminal law specialist, one of three judges in the state to hold this distinction.
As a judge, he has been certified by Judicial Standards as a juvenile court judge.
Additionally, he has taught continuing legal education seminars for attorneys in the areas of criminal and civil law.
He is the past president of the Rowan County Bar Association and of the 19C Judicial District Bar.
Bickett lives in Salisbury with his wife, Terri.
