I recently went to prison for something that happened 12 years ago when I was 22 years old. It was mortgage fraud (I brought investment property as a second home) - I was told it was ok by a licensed broker and real estate lawyers). I referred my friends to the developer and I was charged with wire fraud for being a recruiter.
It was in 2006, I was 22 and was in way over my head. I was indicted in 2010. I subsequently went to college and obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degree, had a stellar career, and did years of volunteer work, but unfortunately due to the vastness of the case, ended up receiving a two year sentence at age 32 (10 years later at the end of 2015). I did 19 months in federal Prison and have been out since July 2017.
Finding work has been terrible, but I have a strong resume and education. I was recently headhunted and offered a position with a need to obtain a security clearance.
My oldest brother has a high clearance. He encouraged me to go ahead and go for it, and to make sure I put him down to speak to.
After reviewing the SF86, this will be the only area Section J, I will have any issues. How would it look because I would really love this opportunity to get back into my life.
