Your Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and also hasn't taken the time to actually return to the company 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 insight that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer 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 said she was sorry, but not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how hard it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a lack of accountability for her own behavior let alone 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 committed felony forgery and the current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Lauren might not be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in the courtroom for the summons.
Lauren Staley-Ferry, D-Joliet, was charged why not try here 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 about his in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry stole a check from her employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, filled it out to herself for an unknown amount 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 said she had already left the state and was back in the Midwest, eventually going back to her hometown, Joliet.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but it seems 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 might probably be probation and restitution.
Lauren 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 click here for info charges were 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, she said, while she did not remember some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She stated the criminal charges was “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
