Your Democratic nominee Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a federal crime and has not even taken the time to return to the company she had stolen from.
If you as a voter and/or concerned citizen are as worried as we are please vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge that Ferry had stolen a check from her place of employment and forged his signature. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, although not to the victim, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no intention to remedy her wrong, rather she apologized and openly lamented how hard it was to be blasted with her own blunders.
This shows a total lack of accountability for her behavior much less the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has committed felony theft while the current Clerk's office continues to be without corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to stand behind Ferry only demonstrating this might lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but did not check out this site appear in court 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 the charge was filed.
According to court documents, the charge alleged in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry stole 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 documents reported 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, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa Co. Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled the state and was back in the Midwest, eventually going back to her hometown, Joliet.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but that it appears 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, Jacinto said, sentencing for you can try this out a forgery conviction would likely be restitution and probation.
She said she was unaware of the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember see this the exact time she departed.
The criminal charges were dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to let them know the change in the status of the case.
The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she did not remember some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She stated the criminal charges was “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” regarding the charge.
