A: The statute of limitations is tolled once the charging instrument is filed with the court. The statute is 2 years for misdemeanor cases in Texas, but once the case is filed with the Court, the statute of limitations no longer is an issue. For a 2002 case, however, they may be other issues you can present in Court, but the warrant must be removed before a court date can be scheduled. Contact an attorney in the city where the warrant is pending.
