Q: can a person still be charged for a crime, when there's video proof of it, even if it's past the statute of limitations
can a man still be charged for a crime, if there's irrefutable video proof found of him commiting it, even if the statute of limitation has reached it's deadline.
A: MORE INFO NEEDED.
AS I COMMENTED, THE DA'S OFFICE CAN BE VERY CREATIVE IN FILING TO TRY TO AVOID CERTAIN DEFENSES..................BUT THE ST/L SHOULD BAR A PROSECUTION OR BE THE SUBJECT OF A 1538.5 MOTION TO DISMISS
A: The Statute of Limitations is a bar to prosecution regardless of the 'proof' of the crime. The Statute varies with the crime involved, so you want to do the research to determine what the SOL is, and keep in mind that the DA could allege a crime that fits within it.
