I spoke with you previously about my situation but here is a

Good evening sir, I spoke with you previously about my situation but here is a recap along with an update: I'm in the military and was under investigation for adultery and fratenization. I am an E-4 and the other involved party is a E-2. It has been 5 weeks since the investigation finished and they informed me that they did not have enough evidence for adultery but we're going to try and NJP me because my soon to be ex wife who is an E-4 made a statement saying that I told her to lie on her statement, of course she can not prove I told her that but my Sgt Maj still wants to push for NJP. My soon to be ex wife is currently on deployment, and will be gone for another 7-8 months. Should i refuse the NJP if they try and NJP with just my wife's statement?
