Democratic Candidate Staley-Ferry Is Running For Will County ClerkYour Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a felony and also has not even taken the time to return to the small business she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the insight that Ferry had stolen a check from her place of employment and forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no attempt to correct her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This shows a total lack of responsibility for her behavior much less the way she might run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery and our current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of corruption.
2. Ferry did not repaid her debt to her former boss.
3. Ferry may not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only demonstrating this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in court for the case.
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 the charge was filed.
From the court documents, the charge alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her place of employment at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for unknown amounts and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The click now documents reported she did so 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 Co. Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left the state 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 period,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never incarcerated. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in More Info court, which she visit site failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be restitution and probation.
Staley-Ferry said she was unaware of the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she did not recall the exact time she left.
The criminal charges were dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to notify them of the change in the status of the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she did not remember some of the details, she denies the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was many years ago.”
Staley-Ferris stated the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” regarding the charge.
