Navy Member Cleared From Pre-Service Drug Paraphernalia Charge

PACIFIC – We were retained by an active duty member of the Navy after a determination had been made to not permit the sailor to continue in the desired military occupational specialty as a result concerns under Adjudicative Guidelines: E  – Personal Conduct and H – Drug Involvement as the result of failing to disclose both a pre-service drug paraphernalia civilian charge and having been fired from a previous employer. Taking the time necessary to rehabilitate the client, we were then able to obtain chain-of-command support for a “rate conversion” which was approved – with the rate requiring a Top Secret Clearance and access to Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI).
