Your Democratic nominee Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a criminal offense and also has not 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 worried as we are and ask you to vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the awareness that Ferry had stolen a check from her place of employment and made it out to herself. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was brought to light, Ferry apologized, although not to the victim, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no attempt to correct her wrong, rather she apologized and openly talked about how difficult it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a lack of responsibility for her actions aside from the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony theft while the current Clerk's office has been clean of corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her debt to her former boss.
3. Lauren might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only demonstrating this could lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear in court go to this web-site 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 Maricopa County but moved from there to Wisconsin before the charge was filed.
According to 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 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 employer.
An arrest Click This Link 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 the state and had returned to the Midwest, eventually going back to Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” 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, Jacinto said, sentencing on a forgery conviction would likely be restitution and probation.
Lauren said she did not know about the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not recall the exact time she departed.
The 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 More about the author to notify them of the change in the status in the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she did not remember the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
Lauren said the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and therefore there was “nothing there” regarding the charges.
