Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi, thank you for your question.
It's been a problem that unfortunately happened repetively
Under North Carolina law, the statute of limitations depends on how the crime is charged. For felonies and malicious misdemeanors, there is no statute of limitations. For all other crimes, the statute of limitations is generally 2 years from the date of the commission.
what constitutes a felony or mm
Some crimes are felonies, some crimes are malicious misdemeanors, and some crimes are neither. It all depends on how serious a crime the legislature decides it should be. Murder is a felony. Trespassing is simply a misdemeanor. It just depends on how serious the law has decided the crime is.
