Arizona has no statute of limitations for forgery.

No matter when the check was discovered?
Expert:  Loren replied 6 years ago.
Forgery is a Class 4 felony and carries a potential 4 ½ year prison term for the first time offender.Ref: Arizona Forgery Statutes-  ARS 13-2002. It has no statute of limitations no matter when it was discovered. Of course, the longer time between the crime and the trial, the harder it would normally be for the prosecution to meet its burden of proof.
