Your Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a federal crime and also 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 awareness that Ferry had stolen 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 crimes was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no intention to remedy her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly lamented how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This shows a lack of accountability for her behavior let alone just how she might run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Ferry has committed felony theft while our current County Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only showing this could bring more problems 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 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 documents reported she did so without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
An arrest warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in our website April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman 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.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Click Here Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never arrested. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, Jacinto said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be restitution and probation.
Staley-Ferry said she did not know about the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember the exact time she left.
The criminal charges were dropped 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, Lauren said, while she cannot recall some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to additional reading that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was many years ago.”
She said the charges had been “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
