Democratic Candidate Felony Staley-Ferry Is Running For Will County ClerkYour Democratic nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a federal crime and also has not the time to actually pay back the small business 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 another candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge that Ferry had taken a check from her place of employment 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 brought to light, Ferry apologized, although not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no intention to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly complained how hard it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a total lack of accountability for her behavior aside from just how she may run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony forgery and the current County Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not repaid her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only showing this could 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 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.
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 document said she did this without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
An arrest 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 settling in Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but that it appears Staley-Ferry was not incarcerated. her explanation Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to content do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be probation and restitution.
Staley-Ferry said she was unaware of the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember the exact time she departed.
The 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 status changes of the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she cannot recall the exact details, she denies the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She said the particular charges had been “misdirected” and read review therefore there were “nothing there” regarding the charges.
