Represented women who were victims of domestic violence

Elaine earned her law degree from Campbell University in 1981 and distinguished herself as a tough advocate for her clients in the courtroom, where she represented women who were victims of domestic violence. In 1993-1994, Elaine served in the North Carolina Senate, where she was named Rookie of the Year and listed among Legislators to Watch by the News & Observer.

Satisfied with the current standstill on death penalty

Marshall said she's satisfied with the current standstill in NC state government over the death penalty. A de facto death penalty moratorium has been in place for 3 years while legal challenges have been pending over how executions are carried out.

"We're not even ready to think about" carrying out death sentences, Marshall said, pointing to past allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and eyewitnesses to crimes naming the wrong suspects.
