I have an opportunity for a position requiring a Q clearance. I’ve made not so smart decisions in the past, which I regret, but I wish to know if these items will be cause for denial of clearance. I believe they very well may. Mistakes made:
Arrested Nov 1981, Alameda, CA – Defrauding the government. Collected monies for being married while in US Navy and not married, repaid funds, honorably discharged.
Arrested May 1995, Newark, NJ – Possession of unregistered firearm. Pretrial Intervention, fined and released.
Arrested Dec 2002, Dover, DE – Auto accident, charged with DUI, convicted of Reckless Driving. Fined and completed driver training school.
Though it is all in my past & nothing like it since. I’ve also held clearances for commercial nuclear power plants since 1981, which is I believe equivalent to an L clearance. Input please.
