Welcome to my campaign website. I am excited to announce my candidacy for District Court Judge in Guilford County March 3, 2020. Please visit the Event page to see upcoming events and announcements.
At her core, Caroline Pemberton is and always have been devoted to the people. She has built a career as a prosecutor who seeks and advocates for fair and impartial justice. She strives to protect and support victims of crimes and make sure their voices are heard. For Caroline, the next step in her decades-long career striving for justice is to take these same principles to the bench.
Caroline's intense dedication, passion, and devotion to her community inspired her to be a judge who will hold individuals accountable for their actions, who will render justice swiftly, fairly, and tempered with compassion. Caroline will be a judge who will always protect the rights of all those who come before her in a court of law.
As a Judge, Caroline hopes that defendants who enter her courtroom will leave feeling they had the opportunity to be heard and were treated fairly without regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background. Our community deserves a judge who is committed to the people, who is an advocate for justice, someone, who is tough on crime, yet fair and compassionate. We need someone who will render verdicts with impartiality and be beyond reproach, someone who will apply the law equally, with knowledge and competency. Caroline Pemberton WILL be that Judge. Vote for Caroline.

My Judicial Philosophies
RIGHTS OF DEFENDANTS AND VICTIMS
Fair and Equal Justice
Everyone who enters the judicial system deserves to be treated fairly and equally. Founding principles such as unlimited opportunities, second chances, adequate resources, and equality are essential in building and maintaining a judicial system that works. I fight each and every day to ensure that the community is advancing towards meeting these founding principles.
This particular issue has been increasingly gaining coverage all over the world. Why exactly? It is an issue that needs to be a focal point within the judicial system. I am pushing for fairness and equality in the judicial system by treating everyone equally without regards to race, color, and socioeconomic background. Learn more and join the cause today.
I am truly passionate about this issue, especially for defendants who are charged with non-violent crimes. I support Restorative Justice programs and Specialty programs such as mental health and drug treatment that will still hold the defendant accountable but get them the help they need to break the cycle and stay out of jail.
JUSTICE MUST BE SWIFT AND FAIR
I am fully aware of the burden and restraints that defendants face when they are charged with a crime and on victims who want to see that justice is served. In many cases, their lives are basically placed on hold until their cases are resolved. It is imperative that cases are disposed of quickly and efficiently to prevent extensive restraints on the lives of defendants and victims. As a prosecutor working in the courtrooms on a daily basis, this has been an area of concern for me. I am consistently commended on my efficiency in the courtroom and my ability to handle large caseloads and dispose of cases quickly and efficiently while ensuring that defendants rights are preserved and victims have an opportunity to be heard.
JUSTICE MUST BE BLIND AND IMPARTIAL
The Scales of Justice symbolizes that justice should be blind and represents the fair distribution of law, with no influence of bias, privilege or corruption. Defendants are often tossed into the balancing of evidence and arguments for and against the case and then the judge checks the balance and announced the decision. Decisions that in many instances have a profound effect on the lives of the people involved.
This is why it is important to have a judge that is competent and is learned of the law and have the ability to apply it with knowledge, fairness, and impartiality. I will be THAT judge.
