Another Clearance (and Military Career) Saved

Bill Savarino helped save another clearance, this one for an Army officer. The issues involved Personal Conduct under Guideline B; Financial Considerations under Guideline; and Criminal Conduct under Guideline J stemming from a US Army Criminal Investigation Command report alleging that the officer committed wire fraud and aggravated identity theft in connection with the G-RAP program. Bill handled the four-hour personal appearance before the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) in Arlington, VA, that then issued a recommendation to the Personnel Security Appeals Board (PSAB), which granted the appeal and reinstated the officer’s clearances.
