My command opened an investigation on me and fratenization,

My command opened an investigation on me for adultery and fratenization, the investigation only took a week came up with little evidence, it's been 3 weeks since the investigation ended and I haven't heard anything. My commander is retiring next week and I still don't know what's going to happen. I know the CO can elect not to do anything but is someone suppose to inform me if the case has been dropped? Will the CO pass the case on to my next CO? How long can I be kept in the dark?

Hypothetical: from Fort Benning, GA. I will no longer be

Hypothetical: I am AWOL from Fort Benning, GA. I will no longer be Entry Level in one month and I have been AWOL 4 days.I left, because my CO repeatedly made it clear that I would not gain a discharge from ANYONE until I returned to duty (was taken off profile and proved that my injury had healed). I am attempting to get a discharge the easiest way I know how.Now, this is the IMPORTANT PART; I would like to serve as little time as possible, recieve the least severe punishment possible, and be processed out in the smallest amount of time possible, while still kbtaining a discharge. Now, before I get an answer screaming at me to turn myself in immediately I want you to understand that this is hypothetical and that this is a qeustion about how to accomplish these goals, not on ethics or how to get out of as much trouble as possible. Thank you.
