As far as the civilian courts they cannot use any of the proceedings from your NJP or anything that your command does against you on the civilian side.
As far as what you're Command does I would speak with a JAG officer and have them give you counsel regarding that. It's my understanding that they can proceed forward with the NJP however they still need to provide evidence to use against you during the NJP process.
