I heard that a case that has reached its statute of limitation cannot be reopened or use to charge against a person who has been found guilty of it. Why? Does that also apply to a murder case that has happened more than a decade ago or has reached its statute of limitations?
If it can't, is there any way it can be reopened, or has there been a consideration of making a law that can reopen cases that have reached its statute of limitations?
If there will be, how will it affect the community?
I'm curious. Thank you very much in advance.
For heinous crimes like murder, there is no statute of limitations in Virginia. If you need any in-person consultation, talk with Virginia Beach criminal defense attorneys or the public defenders office located opposite to the Court house.
