My firm has been acquired for some work by a federal client and I’ve been the sent OF306 and some other internal forms to complete onboarding. My record is completely clear until about a week ago when I was driving from NYC to VA and stopped at a New Jersey rest stop. I was smoking a cigarette and my roommate was smoking a joint. Undercover state troopers confronted us and arrested us both. Some of my roommate’s paraphernalia and less than a gram of marijuana was found in my car so I was cited for a misdemeanor disorderly persons offense and let go after processing. I am extremely concerned about this and am trying to figure out if this will bar me from getting cleared to work and if I’d be in turn fired from my job. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
P.S. Marko, I saw your credentials and am submitting this hoping you will provide some guidance. Please advise.
