looking for some help fr myself and anyone else that may ever come across this thread.
Nutshell - held DoD secret for 15 years. Was falsely accused of a sexual assault (2016). Was charged and prosecuted in a General Court-Martial and found not-guilty of all charges. (wasn’t based on a technicality or anything like that - full trial with not guilty findings)
Secret clearance was never suspended or revoked. (accuser was proven to be non-credible, multiple story changes, motivated to lie, was high on drugs (which i honestly didn’t even know about) and prosecutors had to sign a written admission that the alleged victim committed perjury on the stand during the trial.
Now offered Federal job as civ and will be completing a Public Trust.
Ive done a lot of research for mitigating the concerns over this. From what I’ve read, not guilty findings do not equal - did nothing wrong for security clearances, and that if there’s substantiated charges that evidence may have to be produced to prove innocence.
other than that i had a speeding ticket under $150 and a bankruptcy 3 years ago as part of a divorce agreement
Does anyone have any experience with this as far as adjudications are concerned? the only mitigation that applies is the acquittal, but how do I prove to the investigators I didnt actually do it??
FYI - since 2013 when a 3 star AF General threw a pilot’s conviction out over a sexual assault and senator Gillibrand started trying to take military prosecutoral power away from commanders, the military has prosecuted almost any and every accusation that is made.
