Democratic Candidate Staley-Ferry Runs For Will County ClerkYour Democrat nominee Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a federal crime and has not the time to return to the company she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as worried as we are and ask you to vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the awareness that Ferry had taken a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was brought to light, Ferry apologized, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrong, rather she apologized and openly talked about how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This only goes to show a total lack of accountability for her own behavior not to mention just how she may run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery and our current County Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not be bondable to be the clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to back up Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in the courtroom for the summons.
Lauren Staley-Ferry, D-Joliet, was charged with the felony forgery in Maricopa County, Arizona. Staley-Ferry had lived and worked in Maricopa County but moved from there to Wisconsin before my website the charge was filed.
From the court documents, the charge alleged in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her employer at Independent Capital check Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for unknown amounts and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did this without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
A warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, the spokesperson for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled Arizona and had returned to the Midwest, eventually going back to her hometown, Joliet.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never incarcerated. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
Staley-Ferry said she did not know about the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she did not remember exactly when she left.
The charges were dismissed in 2012, according to court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to let them know the status changes in the case.
When The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she did not look at here remember the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She stated the charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
