On June 10, 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 been criminally charged with sexual misconduct involving two minors. A DOE Psychologist found that the individual suffers from Personality Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDNOS). The Hearing Officer found that the Individual had not shown that the allegations concerning sexual misconduct with minors were unfounded. Moreover, three mental health professionals agreed that the question of whether the Individual suffers from PDNOS turned on the question of whether the Individual had committed sexual conduct with minors. The Individual did not show that he was receiving proper treatment for his PDNOS.
