Hi all,

I joined the Navy straight out of high school. Never had any infractions while in the Navy and received a medical honorable discharge. I am now 24 and have completed college, thus I am looking for a job. The company I received an offer from requires an interim clearance and eventually TS for my position. When I was in high school (14/15 years old), I made a stupid mistake and stole an iPad from another student. I was charged with petty larceny (misdemeanor) and completed what was required of me by the courts. I have not had any offenses since then and would never do anything like this ever again. When I joined the Navy, I reported this on the SF86, as well as reporting a one time use of marijuana. Moving forward, I intend to report these same occurrences on the SF86 I will be required to fill out for this position so that I may receive an interim clearance and hopefully, a TS clearance. Is it likely I could be denied either based on my history? Thank you for your replies.

Given your age at the time and how long it has been since then, I doubt this would be an issue. Interims were getting pretty tight there for a while but based on what I hear it sounds like they are loosening up again.

I would not count on an interim TS though, that is a pretty rare bird. Doesnt sound like that is what you are looking for anyway.
