What is the statute of limitations for possession of child pornography?

Miami, FL |

What is the federal statute of limitations for possession of child pornography? Furthermore, what's the statute of limitations for Florida and Texas, as well?

No, I wasn't charged with this nor did I commit anything. I'm doing research and couldn't find an appropriate answer.

  1. In Florida the statute of limitations for 1st degree felonies is 4 years, and for all other felonies it is 3 years. If you are charged with this crime you will need a very aggressive criminal defense attorney.

  2. The state has up to four years. However, the calculation of the starting point can become very complicated. We need more information such as date of arrest or notice to appear. You will want to consult with an attorney confidentially.

  3. There is no time limitation on federal prosecutions for child pornography. It can be commenced at any time. 18 USC 3299
