Statue of limitations in PA for forgery?

Philadelphia, PA |

Is there a staue of limitation for forgery in PA? If all was paid back and so on, and all documents are present, could charges still be filled at a later date?

  1. Yes, the statute of limitations is 5 years and it does not begin to run until the deception has been discovered.

    42 Pa.C.S. § 5552(b)(1).
