    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Each separate incident is a separate crime and they can charge you with each one. The application of the statute of limitations as a defense is something you would need to consult with a criminal attorney about and they would have to review the timeline of events, and any facts that might have tolled (stopped) the statute of limitaitons and given the state extra time to file.
