Were you upfront with hire-right and the job about the felony or did you only wait until the SF86 to reveal that? Recently I convinced our company to pursue clearance for a person with a felony from the same year. He has lived his life accordingly since, married, has children and putt he past long behind him. Part of my desire for moving forward was to observe it as a test case. He had a favorable interview with both the manager and me for Security purposes. He served no time, only paid a fine and was upfront about the entire situation. The rules say whole person and time mitigates behavior in most cases. But if you were not honest with the hiring manager that can be viewed negatively.
