Incident occurred in 2009 charges were fraudulent use of a credit card and theft of property . Sentence suspended probation given for two years but medical issues caused them to not complete yet. It is 2018 and they just need to know if they can still be picked up for the offense if it has been 9 years now . Statute of limitations???
The statute of limitations is not an issue here. A statute of limitations is the time the prosecution has to commence a criminal action. The action commenced some time ago, according to your post. There may be an outstanding warrant for probation violation. You should seek the counsel of an experienced, local attorney to explore your options.
You do not appear to have a statute of limitations issue. You were apparently convicted and sentenced but failed to fulfill your sentencing obligations. There is likely an outstanding warrant for your arrest. You should consult a local criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Mr. Simms and Mr. Armstrong are correct. The “statute of limitations” is the time that a case must be started, not ended.
