I am submitting an SF-85p for a public trust and have two concerns. First, for background I was given an unsuitability determination for an SF-85p almost 2 years ago due to admitted drug use within a year. Can I expect that will be mitigated since it was only MJ and I havent touched it since?
Second, reading the section about police involvement, it occurred to me this time that I was given a citation for fishing without a license years ago which was eventually dismissed. It’s insignificant but technically a class 3 misdemeanor. I never reported it on the previous SF-85p, but I think I previously misread the section and had associated it with a minor traffic violation, and it was obviously under $150 since it was dismissed. I didn’t intentionally omit it. My question is, should I report it now? I don’t want to appear to contradict myself (especially when there will be additional scrutiny due to previous denial) but will the investigator/adjudicator be understanding of the mistake? Thanks.
