Currently going through my BI for a 3 letter agency under DOJ for a SA positon . I was arrested about 15 years ago. I was charged with “False Insurance Claim” which is a felony. The charge was later dropped and the arrest was expunged. The crime happened when i was 18-19. I took my poly and seems like I passed since I proceeded to take fingerprints and Drug test right after the poly. During the poly, the administer briefly asked about the arrest and later on, she said she didn’t see it as a problem.
My PSS also said he doesn’t see the arrest as a problem based on the “Whole Body” concept and it happened years ago.
Now I am reading some people have their entire BI, Medical completed and while waiting for offer letter etc, they received email telling them they are not suitable for the SA position.
Is it possible the same can happen to me?
I would think if I disclosed everything during my Security interview and Poly they would stop the process right away if my arrest was a problem.
FYI: I work for another 3 letter agency and hold a secret clearance.
Please guys, give me your input. I don’t want to have high hope for no reason.
