Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of

Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of plagiarism while enrolled in a service school via distance learning. The issue, is that she allegedly plagiarized a paper I had submitted in 2015 while also enrolled in the same school. I was recently contacted by the investigating officer who essentially accused me of plagiarism in spite of the fact that I had submitted my paper in April of 2015 and subsequently graduated the course in June of 2015. My spouse is still in the course and submitted the paper in September of 2016. I did not help or provide any assistance with regard to the assignment in question, so it is fairly obvious she copied my old paper without my knowledge since it was saved on a laptop we both use. My immediate questions are: Can the school hold me responsible and or punish me, e.g. GOMOR, even though I graduated 18 months ago and the alleged misconduct occurred last month? Can the school even run a 15-6 on me when I am completely outside its chain of command? I did provide the IO a statement stating very plainly that I did not commit plagiarism, that I did not provide my spouse unauthorized academic assistance and that I was no longer enrolled in the school.

I was just informed that an informal Article 15-6

I was just informed that an informal Article 15-6 investigation is being conducted based on the accusations of a subordinate of mine. I am completely innocent, but my supervisor (who is not the investigating officer) openly informed all of my peers and subordinates that I am under investigation.Because this open announcement to everyone in my office, and despite my innocence, I no longer feel I can do my job properly. What options do I have to correct this situation, and how do I address them? Formal and informal options are appreciated.
