Typically one year from the date of the occurrence to the date of the filing. If the filing is aged, then you may have other alternatives for a dismissal so contact an attorney to discuss further. I have a website that's several pages long on the topic of identity theft, but the short answer is identity theft occurs when someone uses another person's personally identifying information, like a person's name, Social Security number, or credit card number or other financial information, without permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.

The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.


Depends.Lewis v Clark is. Maryland case can give you guidance in your question.
Identity theft and series of crimes that were committed by the use of that stolen identity result in different statutes of limitations.
We can not isolate the issue just to identity theft. That identity theft can be connected with larceny or other crimes that have more than one year statute of limitations.
You need a lawyer that really knows about fraud .
Some of us in avvo like me are fraud examiners (CFE's) and we can help you with your issues

Without the specific statute, it is difficult to say. Generally, however, California misdemeanor's have a one year statute of limitation and California felonies have a 3 year statute of limitations - with some exceptions.
