Bill Savarino Saved Another DoD Clearance

At the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA), Bill Savarino saved another DoD clearance. This successful appeal involved multiple allegations under Guideline G (Alcohol Consumption), Guideline J (Criminal Conduct), and Guideline E (Personal Conduct). The applicant reported numerous arrests for DUI as well as several additional arrests for marijuana possession, theft, and reckless driving. In addition, shortly before the hearing, DoD amended the SOR to include an allegation of deception under Guideline E involving the applicant’s failure to identify certain arrests in his SF-86. The case required a 5 hour hearing in Arlington, VA.
