I know none of you has a crystal ball but I’m pretty worried.
Six months ago I got into an argument with my teenage daughter outside over her cell phone (she refused to hand it to me) and the neighbor called the police. I grabbed her and took it out of her hand and I was arrested for felony family violence. I reported this to my employer as required and my clearance, which is a condition of my employment, was not revoked and I still have a job.
My charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. CPS got called and has closed the case. I thought my lawyer had a deal worked out but now it’s looking like there will be a trial for the misdemeanor charge.
I have an office job and do not work with firearms. I have no past criminal record. I do, currently, have a secret clearance. The people, whoever they are, that are above my employer have now come back and want further details on this case.
As I said, I self reported but I may get a misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence. Would this likely lead to a removal of my clearance (and loss of my job)?
