There is no statute of limitations on felonies in Kentucky. The Commonwealth's attorney will probably present this case to a new Grand Jury in order to obtain an indictment. If the Grand Jury returns an indictment and he leaves the state and is arrested in another state, Kentucky can have him extradited back here and require him to foot the bill for having to do so (and he may have to sit in jail in the other state for up to 90 days just waiting for Kentucky to get him here). He should ask his criminal defense attorney for advice. If he no longer has one, he should obtain one.

There is no statute of limitations on the prosecution of a felony offense in KY. If he has no charge pending with a bond requiring a travel restriction from KY, nor is he on probation or parole with travel restrictions, he can leave the state.

I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
