The statute of limitations for all misdemeanor offenses in Texas is 2 years from the date of offense, unless certain facts exist which "toll" the statute. If you suspect that you or someone you know has a case/warrant out for an old criminal mischief, you really need to talk to an attorney in your area to find out what to do.

2 years from the date of the offense. Note that the time while charges are pending / filed do not count against the statute.

You can look to see if a case is filed at http://www.epcounty.com/PublicSearch/CriminalRecords/CriminalRecordSearch.aspx
You need to contact an attorney or bonding to check for open warrants.
