Obtained removal of former soldier’s negative CID and Army data, allowing him to obtain a security clearance
Mr. Cassara represented a former soldier who had previously been court-martialed and sentenced to confinement. The soldier’s conviction was reversed by the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. However, the Army and CID continued to maintain derogatory information on the soldier in their database. The soldier unsuccessfully sought to have this information removed. After the soldier retained Mr. Cassara, he petitioned the Army Board for correction of Military Records to have the negative information removed. Result: All negative information was removed from the former soldier’s CID and Army personnel file, allowing the former soldier to obtain a security clearance and work on government contracts.
