Man admits promising county job for sex
Gets probation, sex addition counseling

A former county hospital official today was sentenced to probation and ordered to undergo evaluation for sex addition after admitting he promised a job to a 21-year-old woman in exchange for sexual favors.
Felice Vanaria, 49, of Orland Park, pleaded guilty to one count each of bribery and official misconduct, Cook County state’s attorney’s office spokesman Andy Conklin said. Cook County Judge William Lacy sentenced him to 30 months felony probation and ordered he undergo evaluation for sex addiction.
Prosecutors alleged Vanaria abused 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.
The woman in late January was told to contact him about a job opportunity, and during an interview, he said he could get her a job as a physical therapist making $52,000 a year with full county benefits, according to court records.
In early February, Vanaria said he needed to know how badly she wanted the job and that if she wanted the position, she would have to give him "the best kiss ever" and a massage while she wore sexy clothing, court records said. During the meeting, Vanaria allegedly fondled and kissed the woman, who was partially disrobed.
He later contacted the woman and said she would need to reapply, which she did. Vanaria then went to her home and told her that if she really wanted the job, she would need to perform a sex act on him and allow him to do the same to her, court papers said.
Eventually, the woman called the hospital’s human resources department and discovered no one had seen her applications and the hospital wasn’t even accepting applications.
Vanaria, whose home in Orland Park was recently sold, has been laid off from his job.
