    Yes, the government is limited to and can not charge a person when the time stated in the applicable statute of limitations has passed. However, the government may have multiple theories that the S/L has not expired. Legal analysis is not simple math(2+2=4). Generalized questions can only yield a speculative answer. Then the questioner attempts to apply the speculation to their specific matter. This may yield a false conclusion. This is yet another example that what appears to be a...

    The legislature should consider your arguements. Regrettably, elected officials are seldom sensitive to the accused's plight and are more focused in the wrongdoing and punishment. Consult and retain an experienced criminal defense attorney ASAP.

    Poetic license will permit a broad range of outcomes. Real life requires more context and is an evolutionary process that is dynamic. The criminal justice system is not a static, win or lose, environment but rather is dynamic and subjective to a specific fact pattern.

    Yes, you need an attorney. Our criminal justice system is adversarial. That means the government has an attorney representing its interests and the defense has an attorney representing the defendant's interest.
