HR Strange But True!
February 08, 2007

Prosecutors in Omaha, Nebraska, say a man pretended to be an employer and asked women who applied for his nonexistent jobs to provide him with a urine sample, television station WOWT reports.

Prosecutors alleged that Kevin Oliver pretended that he was an executive at a telephone company who was conducting job interviews in his home. The women told police that Oliver's "application process" included asking the women for their urine samples.

Prosecutors said that the jobs never existed and that the scheme went on for more than a year. Prosecutors are still in the dark about Oliver's motive.

"To this day, we don't know what his ultimate goal was but whatever it was it was deceptive, it was damaging and it was protracted," says city prosecutor Marty Conboy. "This went on for 18 months that we know of."

Oliver was convicted on two counts of criminal impersonation and received a sentence of 10 days in jail, 18 months probation, and 120 hours of community service. He will also be required to seek treatment. His attorney tells the television station that Oliver has bipolar disorder, which affects his judgment.
