ST. LOUIS — A 47-year-old Wisconsin man who admitted sending emails to job applicants to a St. Louis health clinic telling them that their names were too “ghetto” to be hired has been sentenced to four years of probation.
Christopher Crivolio, of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, was sentenced Wednesday for identity theft. He also was ordered to pay about $45,000 in restitution.
Prosecutors said he sent the emails in August 2018 to more than 10 applicants to Mantality Health, which had fired Crivolio. He signed the emails using the name of a nurse practitioner at the center, who had to temporarily move after critics posted her name and address online.
An FBI investigation found no one at Mantality authorized Crivolio to use the employee’s name or send the emails.
