I work in the employment industry.
You will never get a security clearance based on your past.
Even being released for the crimes is irrelevant based on past mental health issues.
You would be considered to much of a risk.
And this is not discrimination.
You are being vetted.
That's not true. I got a security clearance in the military, and they knew I was an active member of a group that had been labelled as an
"eco-terrorist" group, and had been arrested for felony evasion. All I had to do was renounce my activities with said group, and then show than the
felony charges against me were dismissed and expunged.
Also, when I was getting out of the military and going through the separation process they tried to stick me with BS diagnoses of sever anxiety and
major depression with suicidal ideations.
I had to argue non-stop that I wasn't suffering from any of that. They finally dropped the BS and instead stuck me with having borderline personality
disorder. I argued against that as well. I wasn't able to get them to remove that and it stuck. I was still able to separate with an honorary
discharge, but my record still lists BPD.
None of that crap has affected me from getting a carry permit, pass multiple background and security checks, or get my current job.
Figure out whatever you're doing, and figure out what you can do differently. Talk to different people, pay a psychologist to evaluate you and see if
you can get something worked out with your mental diagnosis. Talk to your court peeps and see what you need to do to get your records expunged.
I even know of other people who were arrested and convicted of being drug dealers. They did their time, paid their dues and got their rights restored
to be able to buy and own guns and vite and whatever else.
So, do something.
