I remember a clearance holder some time ago who had a warrant for his arrest issued by the court, for failure to appear or something along those lines. The individual maintained he had no knowledge of this arrest warrant. Impossible to say if he did or didn’t, but certainly the courts around where I live notify folks promptly and expeditiously of summons and arrest warrants. Nevertheless, he should have known, it’s his responsibility after-all.
There was no incident report, certainly no career implications, no red flags in JPAS which linger for years. The individual cleared it up with the investigator, cleared it up with the courthouse, and that was the end of it.
See the difference?
