Grand jury indicts hospital worker in sex-for-job case

Charges escalated Thursday against an Orland Park man accused of demanding sexual favors from a job candidate at Oak Forest Hospital whom he had no right to hire.
A Cook County grand jury indicted Felice Vanaria, 49, who's now charged with two felony counts of bribery as well as four felony counts of official misconduct.
Vanaria, of the 14000 block of Avalon Court, was an administrative assistant at the county hospital who organized continuing-education programs for doctors. He worked in the human resources building but never had authority to hire anyone.
In late January, Vanaria told a 21-year-old Orland Park woman he could land her a $52,000-a-year job as a physical therapist despite her lack of training because "there are people who owe me favors," according to prosecutors.
They said that when she returned with her application, Vanaria asked her for a kiss and rubdown and persuaded her to partially disrobe in his office.
On Feb. 15, he went to her home with another job promise and had her perform sex acts while wearing lingerie, prosecutors said. They said he also had a friend call the woman, pretending to be from the hospital's human resources department.
But after the woman called human resources and learned her application was not on file, she called Orland Park police.
Police told her to invite Vanaria to her home and, hiding in an adjacent room, officers heard him make lewd proposals, according to police. Vanaria was supposed to be working at the time.
Vanaria, who remains free on $15,000 bail, is on administrative leave pending the outcome of his criminal case and continues to collect his $40,800 annual salary, according to a county spokesman. The married father of a teenage son has no criminal history.
