I currently have a secret clearance and work for a defense contractor. Back in February 2015, I made a stupid mistake and got arrested for Public Intoxication. I ended up simply pleading guilty to it and paying the fine. Other than that, i have no criminal record. Also, I have not gotten in any legal trouble since then. I am currently applying for promotions / other positions within my company and when interviewing for other positions, applicants are required to fill out a short questionnaire about things like: arrest record, credit history, foreign national relationships, etc. One of the questions on it asks: “Have you been arrested in the past 7 years?”
Will my arrest from 2015 put my security clearance in jeopardy? Will this impact my eligibility for other positions?
Thank you so much!
