On June 27, 2012, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should not be restored. The Individual had a history of nine arrests, seven of which were alcohol-related. In addition, the Individual had provided inaccurate and incomplete information to security officials during his background investigation. The Hearing Officer found that the Individual’s credibility was suspect and therefore concluded that the Individual had not mitigated any of these security concerns at the hearing.
