    Answered . It depends on the charge. For certain offenses there is no statute of limitations. Generally, most federal crimes have a statute of limitations of five years, although there are exceptions that apply for certain crimes, when the wanted person is a fugitive, crimes against certain victims, etc. you should speak with an attorney for more specific answers.
