Democratic Candidate Felony Staley-Ferry Is Running For Will County ClerkYour Democratic candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a federal crime and has not the time to actually pay back the organization she stole money 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 taken a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no intention to remedy her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how difficult it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her own actions let alone just how she might run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony forgery and the current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Ferry might not be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched 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 check 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 employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The 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 County Attorney’s Office. By you can find out more then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona and was back in the Midwest, eventually settling in 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 court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing for a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
She said she did not know about the charges until she my sources 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 in the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she cannot recall some of the details, she denies the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
Lauren said the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
