PSH-13-0116 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On January 29, 2014, an Administrative Judge issued a Decision in which he determined that an individual’s access authorization should be restored. In reaching this determination, the Administrative Judge found that the individual had resolved security concerns under Criteria K and L regarding the Individual’s recent arrest for Facilitation of the Manufacture or Sale of illegal drugs and Child Neglect, the arrest of two of her sons at the Individual’s residence on various illegal drug charges, and her 17-year old daughter’s recent arrest for possession of marijuana. At the hearing, the Individual offered evidence that both charges against her were dropped by the local prosecutor,  that both of her sons who were arrested in her residence no longer live there, and that, upon learning her daughter was using marijuana, she placed her daughter in a treatment center for her marijuana use. The Individual also presented witnesses to establish that she had not had any involvement with or used illegal drugs during the prior 20 years and that, before their arrest, she had instructed her children not to be involved with illegal drugs or conduct activities with illegal drugs at her residence. Consequently, the Administrative Judge found that the individual had resolved all of the Criterion K and L security concerns and that her security clearance should be restored.
