hello, I hope someone can provide guidance.
I'm planning to submit an SF 86 for CG Security Clearance.
Question 22 (Police Record) asks : respond for the timeframe of the last 7 years (if an SSBI go back 10 years).
I have, but that was many years ago...I was arrested twice for misdeamenor pot 1977ish and DWI ~1973. My 'ol man bailed me out & paid my fines and I never had to appear in court. (well his court, and that hurt).
Last week a cop ticketed me (my scooter) for loud exhaust (bs) and as he was checking me on his computer he mentioned it looked like I was arrested (couldn't say when or where) & he recommeded I get an expungment.
I requested a local attorney to perform a background search and they couldn't find anything (on me). Then I registered, paid & searched on Texas Dept Public Safety Crime Records database which showed 'No Records"
Ok, on the SF 86, I plan to check "no", because it was alot greater than 7 - 10 years. Should I not sweat anything... and not state anything else?
Also, why did the cop see "something" that attorneys & the TDPS didn't?
