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?

I had a Summary court-martial in the Navy about 8 years ago.

I had a Summary court-martial in the Navy about 8 years ago. Was found guilty and given a Administrative Discharge (other than honorable ). Everything I was told before getting discharged and information ive found recently says you cant get a misdemeanor or felony from a summary court-martial. Ive bought guns from licensed sellers and passed background checks and currently have a job that requires a felony free record. Im in a pickle now because I applied for a conceld carry permit and the Sheriff denied it saying I was a felon and he was going to pass it along to the prosecution for futher charges. It was a rather rude letter. What do I need to do? Maybe get a lawyer to put this in writing and show him? Ive dropped off a file with my dischage info and print outs from military lawyer websites stating its not a felony. He hasnt been in the office every time ive tried talking to him. Any help would be great.
