    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Under section 30.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law the statute of limitations on a burglary is five years. This period can be extended by up to five years under certain circumstances, such as if you are continuously outside the state or your location is continuously unknown and not ascertainable by the exercise of due diligence.

    Answered . Ditto to Richard but I would add that the prosecution have had to actually been exercising due diligence to find you. Meaning they knew who you are and that you are the one who committed the crime but they simply can’t get a hold of you.
