Will County Clerk Nominee is a EmbezzlerYour Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a criminal offense and also has not the time to actually return to the small business 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 her place of employment and forged his signature. 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 victim, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly lamented how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This shows a total lack of responsibility for her actions much less the way she may run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Ferry has committed felony forgery while our current County Clerk's office continues to be without corruption.
2. Lauren has not pay back her debt to her former boss.
3. Ferry may not even 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 lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear in the courtroom 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 directory 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 stole a check from her place of employment at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, filled it out to herself for unknown amounts and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did so without the knowledge or permission of her my site employer.
A warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona and had returned to the Midwest, eventually settling in her hometown, Joliet.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was not arrested. 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 would likely be restitution and probation.
She said she did not know about the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she could not recall the exact time she departed.
The charges were check here dismissed in 2012, according to court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to notify them of the status changes of the case.
The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she cannot recall some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
Staley-Ferris said the particular charges was “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” regarding the charge.
