Will County Clerk Candidate is a LawbreakerThe Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a criminal offense and also has not even taken the time to actually return to the company 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 insight that Ferry had stolen 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 brought to light, Ferry apologized, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her actions not to mention just how she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony theft while the current County Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry has not pay back her debt to her former boss.
3. Lauren might not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to support Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in the courtroom 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 this page 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 try this website for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The documents reported 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 County Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled the state and was back in the Midwest, eventually going back to Joliet, her hometown.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” 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 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 did not recall the exact this article time she left.
The criminal charges were dropped in 2012, according to 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, Lauren said, while she did not remember the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She stated the particular charges had been “misdirected” and therefore there was “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
