Democrat Felony Ferry Runs For Will County ClerkYour Democratic nominee Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a felony and also hasn't even taken the time to pay back the organization she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge that Ferry had taken a check from her place of employment and made it out to herself. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was finally revealed, Ferry said she was sorry, although not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no attempt to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how hard it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This only goes to show a total lack of responsibility for her behavior aside from the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery while the current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of corruption.
2. Lauren has not repaid her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not even 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 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 never appeared 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 stole a check from her place of employment at Independent Capital Group, then located click here now in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did so 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, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa Co. Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona and had returned to 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 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, the Sheriff said, sentencing for a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
She said she did not know about the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember exactly when she left.
The 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 Felon Ferry for Will County Clerk notify them of the change in the status in the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall several of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to pop over to these guys that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
Lauren said the charges was “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
