I applied for a new position that requires a TS/SCI, I currently hold a TS. I was reinvested in 2018. On my SF 86 form I disclosed that I had been arrested for DVD. I was taken to the MP station but never charged (no court). I told the story to the investigator and received an email not long after that everything was satisfactory and I still hold an active TS. My question is could I be denied a SCI for this?
When was this arrest? Was it prior to the 2018 investigation?
And what is DVD? I tried googling ‘DVD arrest’ and all I got was ads for Arrested Development DVDs…
The arrest was 7 years ago.
Sorry that was meant to say DV (domestic violence)
So if you were favorably adjudicated for TS, I imagine you will probably be favorably adjudicated for the SCI as well, since it was previously disclosed. I wonder if they will want to re-do parts of the investigation, just to follow up. You will probably have to fill out a new SF-86, hopefully it remembers all your answers from last time.
Okay thank you. I believe they will have me submit the SF-86 again. I was thankfully told early on to keep a copy of all my answers because inconsistencies are not good. Thanks for answering my question.
Glad it was helpful… but it is just my opinion. Let’s see if anyone else offers additional insights.
So guessing active duty Army, military system arrest. Those “apprehensions” (military equivalent of civilian arrest) are recorded and reported for Lautenberg purposes. Being apprehended…sends you to your commander and legal office for a determination of whether or not you are deemed guilty and administratively punished, Article 15 (Captain’s Madt Navy), or will you ho to a court’s martial. That is like trial…defense, prosecution, etc.
Did you get an article 15, reprimand…counseling…or did it go to a court’s martial? Both require reporting on form. If 24 months passed, and you previously reported, and cleared…I don’t see it as an item stopping SCI. If it was deemed an alcohol related incident and you received treatment or counseling, that too needs reported.
Amberbunny2, I was not active duty but my husband was. After the apprehension nothing ever came of it. It has been seven years since this occurred and I did report it when they did a re-investigation. I spoke with the investigator about it and they granted my TS. Since it has been investigated they granted my TS after this incident would it cause any issues with a SCI?
Technically, the SCI part is a higher standard on the TS. Meaning one can clear TS, but get denied a specific SCI. I’ve seen it invoked when a cleared person was married to a cleared former Russian citizen. But not for a crime committed a long time ago. If previously disclosed and still in the 10 year look back, bring it forward, and supply any evidence you have.
Thank you Amberbunny2.
