Yes, it is one year under 42, 1986. A Cause of Action the facts that give a person a right to judicial relief, usually "accrues" on the date that the injury to the plaintiff is sustained. When the injury is not readily discoverable, the cause of action "accrues" when the plaintiff in fact discovers the injury. So it could be when the prosecution began with the charges being filed. Not an arrest.
