Q: What's the statue of limitations?

I went to a grocery store in 2013 and they accused me of stealing some pens but they just said to leave and to never come back which I didn't until today so can the company still file charges even though it's been so long?

Mr Aric M Cramer Sr. answered on Aug 18, 2019

It depends on the value of the pens. Most misdemeanor statutes of limitations are two years, and most felony statutes of limitations are four. It seem the easiest solution would be to not go back to that store......

Q: How do I prove my husband's innocence with a gun charge? His brother and I are an eye witnesses to his innocence.

The cops never searched him when they got the call. They only called him. He is currently in prison for this. They have no prof/evidence there was ever a gun. Just by word of mouth.

If he is in prison he must have admitted guilt or been found guilty. You need an appellate attorney.
