What are the statute of limitations in GA on a felony possession charge of marijuana?

Asked almost 4 years ago - Waycross, GA

I was arrested with a quarter pound of marijuana on Jan. 4 2008. I still have not heard anything on this matter. I want to know if there is a statute of limitation on this charge. I have tried everything to find the answer to this question. Please Help Me!

    Answered . Four years. See O.C.G.A. Section 17-3-1. There are exclusions that can extend the time if, for example, the person has moved outside of the state, jumped bond or other things of a similar nature.
