The Democratic candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a federal crime and hasn't the time to actually pay back the small business she had stolen 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 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 brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the victim, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no attempt to correct 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 accountability for her own actions not to mention just how she may run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery and the current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to support Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged advice with felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear 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 have a peek at these guys alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The documents reported 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, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s 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 my website 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.
Staley-Ferry said she did not know about 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, 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 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 denies the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was many years ago.”
Staley-Ferris said the criminal charges had been “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” regarding the charges.
