Statute of Limitation......let me understand this correctly.
Statute of limitation is the time alotted to actually persue
charges. I.E I was "sexually assaulted" I didn't report it
until five years later. Now my understanding is that i would
have six years to file before or I would not be able to file
The legal amount of time in which a victim/survivor has to
bring criminal charges or a civil suit against a perpetrator
is called the "statute of limitations."
Felony Cases: The statute of limitations is six years, unless
the victim is an out-of-state resident.
Criminal Cases: Felony cases involving the sexual assault of
a child must be commenced before age 31.
Misdemeanor Cases must be commenced within three years of the
Now, once the charges are filed they can persue as long as
it takes to bring to justice.
So, if I committed a the crime 10 years ago and the
charges are still pending I can still be prosecuted. Is there
no limit until the charges can be dismissed?
