You are only required to list an offense relating to alcohol or drugs if in fact it is an offense relating to alcohol or drugs. Using a fake ID to enter a bar isn’t an offense relating to alcohol unless you were charged or cited for an offense relating to alcohol. This appears to be an offense relating to your integrity and judgement. Did you use alcohol at the bar underage and did the charge have any language in the citation that indicated you were also being charged with an alcohol related offense? Or did you just enter the bar illegally underage using a fake ID illegally to watch a concert and not drink any alcohol whatsoever?
You aren’t required to list this citation it if it is outside of the timeframe being requested to list on the Security Questionnaire. Since alcohol or drugs is an ever question, you’d list an offense relating to alcohol or drugs in your lifetime. The misdemeanor fake ID charge is relating to a citation within the last seven years for a criminal proceeding against you. If it occurred outside the seven years and wasn’t originally a felony charge then you aren’t required to list it no matter how bad your conscience wants to disclose it.
Pay very close attention to what is being asked of you on the form. In this scenario, you wouldn’t go into any details or answer yes to a fake ID to enter a bar illegally unless the offense also included an alcohol related charge for drinking underage, minor consumption or possession, etc. If in fact you were never charged with an offense relating to alcohol in your lifetime as the question has asked you…”have you ever been charged with an offense relating to alcohol or drugs”, then you’d answer the question as No. Using a fake ID is not a charge relating to alcohol unless you were charged at the bar also for an alcohol related offense.
Everyone on here gave you poor advice. I’m coming from the perspective of someone that has gone over that SF-86 hundreds and hundreds of times (that number is probably in the thousands) with people as an Investigator. The moderator on this website should “nip” in the bud any poor advice coming from uneducated opinions otherwise it complicates the already backlogged BI industry with everyone listing that they sampled a grape at the grocery store just to clear their conscience.
Answer the questions truthfully based upon the timeframes being asked of you. Answer the questions exactly as they are asked. If the question asks you to list charges or offenses related to alcohol in your lifetime, list only alcohol related offenses in the question where you were “charged”. You wouldn’t list a Fake ID charge that isn’t related to an alcohol charge unless an alcohol charge was involved.
