What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Criminal Charge?

Criminal law is prosecuted and enforced at the state level and imposes tough penalties that increase for repeat offenders. According to Code Section 556.036, the statute of limitations for criminal charges varies based on the type of charge. A Class A felony such as murder has no statute of limitations, but other Class A felony crimes have 3 years. Sexual offenses involving a person under the age of 17 are under a 10-year statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for fraud is 1 to 3 years, misdemeanors 1 year, and minor infractions are classified under a 6-month statute of limitations.
