Another DOHA Security Clearance Victory

Bill Savarino successfully convinced the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals to grant a clearance despite admissions of dishonesty under Guideline E. The applicant, a former military officer, lied about having extramarital sex with an enlisted man to her superior officer, to a state court judge in her divorce proceedings, and then to a Defense Security Service Special Agent in connection with her periodic reinvestigation. Mr. Savarino presented sufficient evidence to mitigate DOHA”s concerns during a 4 hour hearing in Arlington, VA.
