Will County Clerk Nominee is a Felon

The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a federal crime and also hasn't the time to actually 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 the other candidate. For those who do not have the awareness that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer 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 injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly lamented how difficult it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.

This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her behavior much less just how she may run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!



4 thoughts to consider before you vote:

1. Lauren has committed felony forgery while the current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not 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 charged with felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear 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 was filed.

According to court documents, the charge alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made their website it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The documents reported she did so 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 Co. Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona and was back in 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 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, published here sentencing for a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.

Lauren said she was unaware of the charges until our website she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember exactly when she departed.

The charges were dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to let them know the status changes of the case.

The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall several of the details, she rejects the charge.

“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was many years ago.”

Staley-Ferris stated the criminal charges was “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
