The prosecution dismissed a case for lack of evidence. The offender did not do what she was accused of doing. Additionally, the witness in the case is a drug abuser. The offender never had an arrest or conviction record. I was just wondering if nolle prosequi cases can only be pursued during a certain time period.
The SOL appears to be 5 years for felonies in Delaware and 3 or 2 years for misdemeanors. But for certain crimes there is no SOL
