Staley-Ferry Is Running For Will County ClerkThe Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a criminal offense and has not the time to return to the small business 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 insight that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer 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 said she was sorry, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to correct her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly complained how hard it was to be blasted with her own crimes.
This only goes to show a total lack of accountability for her behavior not to mention just how she might run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before voting:
1. Lauren has committed felony theft and our current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of corruption.
2. Ferry has not pay back her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this might lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear 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 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 unknown amounts 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 then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled the state 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 not 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 might probably be probation and restitution.
She said she was unaware of the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she could not recall exactly find more when she departed.
The charges were dropped 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.
When The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall the exact details, she denies the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
Staley-Ferris stated the charges had been “misdirected” and Clicking Here that there Homepage were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
