On July 26 2013, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which she concluded that an individual’s security clearance should not be restored. In November and December 2012, as part of a background investigation, the local security Office (LSO) conducted a Personnel Security Interview (PSI) of the individual to address concerns about the individual’s pattern of criminal conduct. The individual’s behavior raised security concerns under Criterion L. After conducting a hearing and evaluating the documentary and testimonial evidence, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had not presented sufficient evidence to mitigate the security concerns associated with his three charges of Driving Under the Influence. Accordingly, the Hearing Officer concluded that the individual’s security clearance should not be restored.
