"Position of Public Trust" Form 85P and past drug use/misdemeanors... will it interfere?

I'm applying for a position that requires me to submit form 85P, application for position of public trust.

I listed two charges that I was convicted of, they are misdemeanors... one was paraphernalia and one was petit larceny and they happened about 2 years ago. I also had a felony possession charge that was dismissed recently.

In addition to that, I have a few debts I listed on the form that I haven't taken care of yet.

I was as honest as possible when filling out the paperwork... is any of this stuff going to interfere with me passing/getting this clearance?

Thanks

Can anyone give me SOME advice? I'm waiting to submit my paperwork until I at least get a glimmer of hope... but I can't delay forever.

Under the circumstances you've described, I would be surprised if any federal agency would grant you a security clearance at this time.

Be honest when you fill out the forms and be prepared to accept responsibility for your past decisions.

Seriously? Its just two misdemeanors...  I thought they let stuff like that past a lot as long as you're honest about it, and it was my impression that this was a really low level clearance...

And I was completely honest when filling out the forms.

Also I should point out, I may have posted this in the wrong forum... I need this clearance to work with a government contractor on some FAA network security stuff... I wouldn't be working for an Intelligence Agency... does that change anything?

The criteria for adjudication of security clearances are the same across agencies:

See in particular Guideline J: Criminal Conduct.

I had a misdemeanor charge in 10/2007 which was settled in first hearing.
Im applying for a federal job, as a IT contractor. Im required to have a Pub Trust Clearance. Would this charge be a deterrent factor in getting a clearance?
