On March 18, 2013, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should not be restored. The Individual had a history of three arrests, two of which was alcohol-related. A DOE Psychologist found that the individual has the tendency to minimize his responsibility and misrepresent facts when they could reflect badly on him.” The Hearing Officer found that the Individual had mitigated any of those security concerns arising from the DOE Psychologist’s finding. However, the Hearing officer found that the security concerns raised by the Individual’s three arrests had not been sufficiently mitigated.
