The Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a federal crime and has not the time to actually pay back the organization she embezzled from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe 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 taken a check from her place of employment and forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the victim, and there was no effort to repay this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how hard it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This shows a lack of accountability for her behavior much less just how she may run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery while our current Clerk's office continues to be clean of corruption.
2. Ferry did not repaid her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry may not be bondable to be the clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to stand behind Ferry only demonstrating this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was charged with 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.
According to court documents, the charge alleged that, in July why not try these out 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 this without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
A 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 then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled Arizona Clicking Here and was back in the Midwest, eventually settling in Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but that it appears Staley-Ferry was not incarcerated. 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 might probably be restitution and probation.
Staley-Ferry said she was unaware of the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not recall exactly when she departed.
The criminal charges were have a peek at this site dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to let them know the change in the status in the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she did not remember some of the details, she denies the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
Lauren stated the criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
