Sorry for the situation.


The criminal statutes of limitations generally are in sections 5-106 and 5-107 of the Courts and Judicial Proceedings part of the Maryland Code; MD Code, Crim. Law § 2-102.


Misdemeanors in general: within one year



So the statute of limitations would be one year for the alleged theft of $1k.

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

I don't know where he got 2 years - that's wrong.

No SOL for Felony Offenses; 1 Year SOL for Misdemeanors : Maryland has no time limitation for prosecutions of felonies. See Clark v. State, 744 A.2d 113, n.8 (Md. 2001). Most sexual offenses are classified as felonies. MD. CODE ANN., CRIM. LAW §§ 3-301 to -324 (2008). Misdemeanors may be prosecuted within 1 year. MD. CODE ANN., CTS. & JUD. PROC. § 5-106 (2008).

If you have additional questions on this issue - you should continue on with this question instead of asking a new question.

What more do you need?
You asked: just ask about theft under 1,000 what about this lawyer read in a book stat was two years not one and with me writing a note in May would that change things

 

 

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.
