Democrat Staley-Ferry Runs For Will County Clerk

The Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a felony and has not the time to pay back the small business she embezzled 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 insight that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer 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 attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrong, rather she apologized and openly complained how difficult it was to be confronted with her own crimes.

This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her actions let alone the way she might run the county clerks office, if she is able to!



4 things to think about before voting:

1. Lauren has perpetrated felony forgery and the current Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Ferry may not even be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County

Detailed news.

A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in the courtroom 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 in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry stole a check website link from her place of employment at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, filled it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did so without read what he said 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 the state and had returned to the Midwest, eventually settling in her hometown, Joliet.

Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates 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, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be probation and restitution.

Lauren said she did not know about the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she could not recall exactly when she departed.

The charges were dismissed in 2012, according to court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to notify them of the status changes of the case.

The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she did not remember the exact details, Resources she rejects the charge.

“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was many years ago.”

She said the criminal charges had been “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
