I have already answered this question for you, as the previous attorney has told you. It is generally 3 years on a Felony and 1 year on a misdemeanor. As I related to you on the phone, there are some felonies which carry a statute of 6 years depending on how the case is charged.
Except as provided in Section 799, prosecution for an offense
punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for eight years or
more or by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170
for eight years or more shall be commenced within six years after
commission of the offense.
No one can answer this question without knowing what the actual charge will be.
You keep asking the same thing. If he did nothing about it yet, he probably will never. Why would he care? He probably gets dozens of threats a week. AND, if you still stealing movies, stop that, too. Just quit worrying about it. You think that's going to worry a boxer. If he is mad, he'll punch your nose. No "statue" on that, except the statute of Joe's fist.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
