County worker denies promising job for sex

A county hospital official has pleaded innocent to charges alleging he promised to get a 21-year-old woman a job in exchange for sexual favors.
Felice Vanaria, of Orland Park, pleaded innocent to two counts of bribery and four counts of official misconduct, Cook County state’s attorney’s office spokesman Andy Conklin said.
Vanaria is accused of abusing his position as a medical education coordinator at Oak Forest Hospital between Jan. 25 to Feb. 21 by promising a job to a 21-year-old certified massage therapist in exchange for sexual favors, prosecutors said.
The woman contacted Vanaria about a job at the hospital in late January. In early February, he allegedly told her that if she wanted the job, she would have to give him “the best kiss ever” and a massage while she wore sexy clothing, according to court records. During that visit, Vanaria allegedly fondled and kissed the woman, who was partly disrobed.
He later contacted the woman and said the job had changed and she would need to reapply, which she did. He then went to her home for a massage, but instead allegedly told her that if she really wanted the job, she would need to perform sex acts on him and allow him to do the same to her, according to court records.
Eventually, the woman called the hospital’s Human Resources Department and discovered no one had ever heard of her or seen her applications. In fact, the hospital wasn’t even accepting job applications.
