I currently hold a Secret Clearance for the past four years, and I have applied for a regular Top Secret with the military, and put in the paper work for a TS/SCI when applying to a job for a DoD agency.
About two months ago, I had a moment of bad judgement where I found the email credentials an ex gave me a few years ago and logged into the email account. After a some reading and no downloading, I realized my mistake, and have never done it again.
I admitted this bad judgement during the polygraph for the interview for the DoD agency.
I have no drug use, no criminal history, no financial troubles, no drinking or gambling problems, and no negative foreign influences, along with my current Secret security clearance.
Have I messed up my TS chances with this one mistake? I told the polygrapher I regret what I have done, it was only once and that I have no plans to ever do it again.
Do I risk getting my current Secret clearance revoked as well?
