I’m applying for a spot with a Federal agency and could use some advice.
A little over four years ago I was on a deployment. During a long weekend my friends and I stayed together in a city. One of our friends was a virgin and some joked about getting him a hooker for his first time. We ended up sending money to one friend who then ‘ordered’ a woman to come while we all were out and our virgin friend was alone. So I had no contact with the woman. She did show up while we were away but my friend wanted nothing to do with it and the woman left quite early on without anything happening. I had completely forgotten about this incident until starting my application process.
Is this something I need to mention on the SF-86 under “In the past 7 years, have you engaged in prostitution or solicited the services of a prostitute, either in the U.S. or abroad, regardless of legality?” If I mention this are my chances gone? I obviously don’t want to lie because I’m a terrible liar but if it doesn’t fall under prostitution or solicitation I’d rather not have to deal with it. Worried about the polygraph mainly.
I’m completely clean on all legal fronts besides driving home from the bar with probably too much alcohol in my blood. (I made it home safely with no DUI) But I did mention this under the question asking about illegal activity that I wasn’t accused/charged/convicted of.
