The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and also has not even taken the time to return to the company 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 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 apologized, although not to the victim, and there was no effort to repay this debt, no intention to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This shows a lack of responsibility for her actions let alone just how she might run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Ferry has committed felony forgery and the current Clerk's office continues to be 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 dispatched his team to back up Ferry only showing 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 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 see post was filed.
According to court documents, the charge alleged 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 why not check here then deposited it into her personal checking account. The documents reported 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 County Attorney’s this post Office. By then, Staley-Ferry said she had already fled Arizona and had returned to the Midwest, eventually settling in her hometown, Joliet.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but that it appears 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.
She said she was unaware of the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she did not remember exactly when she left.
The charges were dismissed in 2012, according to 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, she said, while she did not remember the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was many years ago.”
She said the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” regarding the charge.
