On October 21, 2013, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should not be restored. The Record showed that the individual had a history of three alcohol-related arrests. A DOE Psychologist also diagnosed the individual with Alcohol-Abuse. The Hearing Officer found that the Individual had not shown that he was reformed or rehabilitated from his Alcohol-Abuse. Nor had the individual mitigated the security concerns raised by his criminal activity since that activity was symptomatic of his Alcohol Abuse.
