HELP NEEDED PLEASE! Security Clearance & Dropped Felony Arrest Record


When I was 19, I got arrested and was charged with “False Insurance Claim” which is a “Felony” in my state. I was placed in Pretrial- Diversion and later the charge was dismissed(Nolle Pros). The record was also expunged. Since then, I have earned my Bachelor Degree, married and have a son, I even obtained “Secret Clearance” for my current Law Enforcement Federal Job. I am about start the BI for another job that requires “Top Secret Clearance”. Do you think I will have a chance although this incident happened more than 10 years ago?

Please give me some input guys.

Yes . . . You should be just fine.

Not trying to be annoying. But can you elaborate more? Have you seen or heard people of similar situation got approved for TS?

I really want this job man. But that stupid mistake I made in the past is worrying me man.

I assume that you completely disclosed and discussed this when you had your previous investigation? There are posts here from people with tougher, more recent, crimes than yours.

Ofcourse, it was all disclosed on my SF86, to the investigator. I even disclosed it during the Polygraph. Well, thank you man, that’s very reassuring to hear people with worse stuff and more recent got a TS.
