I received a tentative offer from DHS/ICE/OPLA pending background investigation. I have an arrest 17 years ago. The charge was the possession of a forged instrument reduced to disorderly conduct. The circumstance was that I had an old Rx that I wanted to fill and I changed the date on the Rx. There are also other extenuating circumstances behind the whole story that I won’t go into. I disclosed this in a four-page explanation, including the Certificate of Disposition of the case (a fine of $100).
On the flipside, I have an excellent work record, personal life, and excellent references. Should I be worried?
