Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
There was a lawyer that looked it up and said two years what about the statue in state of MAryland for theft under a 1,000
It's clear - check the statute out that I have given you - the statute of limitations is one year.
I don't know what book or resource that other attorney used but go directly to the State of Maryland and double check the code numbers I gave you.

PRO LAW PLEASE ANSWER WHAT IF I WROTE A LETTER STATING RESTITUTION CULD THAT SUPERSEED THE STATUE
No. The statute starts to run at the time of the offense - that letter would have no control or start the statute of limitations from starting at that time or re-starting at that time.
The statute of limitations is one year from the date of the alleged event or crime.
MR PRO BONO THANK YOU SO MUCH
