    This was posted as a "Missouri" question. You indicated there was an indictement. Most drug cases in Missouri of any magnitude are turned over to the US for prosecution, particularly in the meto areas such as Kansas City where I practice. In KC cases do not proceed by indicment in State Court unless the defendant refuses to waive preliminary hearing. This is rare simply because there is always a state grand jury in session and most counsel have their clients waive for that reason. So...

    SEEKING ADVICE AND WHERE TO TURN: This too is a specific question about a federal prosecution. Mr. Robinson’s answer needs serious clarification. First, his suggestion that the defendant contact a former “law secretary for a judge in the county in which this occurred” suggests an utter unfamiliarity with federal practice. This case was prosecuted in a “federal judicial district” with the 4th Circuit US Court of Appeals. No county judge was involved and it was not a state prosecution so...

    Chapter 556, RSMO, sets out the statute of limitations in Missouri. For ordinary crimes the periods are: Time limitations. - (1) For any felony, three years; (2) For any misdemeanor, one year; (3) For any infraction, six months. This is just the starting rule. There are then a number of exceptions in 556. to the general rules that can extend the limitation periods. You should go to the chapter and read the various sections. They are not difficult to understand. A direct link to the...

    This will vary from state to state. If it is a federal prosecution, it is five years. Be aware, however, if the defendant was charged within the 5 year period and his identity known and he simply could not be arrested for whatever reason, the statute of limitations is tolled and does not apply

    Mr. Barron’s answer is 100% on the mark. I would only add the following. I represented a client in the district of Kansas, Kansas City, Kansas Division, on a federal gun charge. He had successfully completed diversion in the Western District of Missouri, Kansas City Davison, on a federal gun charge. He was offered diversion frankly because the government could not prove the case. As part of the diversion he was required to sign a diversion agreement that admitted guilt in the Missouri...

    I disagree with Mr. Robinson’s answer which in my opinion is incomplete and to some extent seriously in error. This question was listed as a federal prosecution question. The defendant receives a "draft copy" of the presentence report. He has 10 days to file any objections to the federal sentencing guideline calculations. The Probation Officer will then address these objections in a "final" presentence report which will contain an addendum. He may or may not conceded objections which will...
