Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'm licensed in Mississippi.

There is no statute of limitations in Mississippi for forgery, so technically, you could still file charges in the county where the act of forgery occurred. Here's a good link you can read: http://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/criminal-case-statute-of-limitations/MS-felonies-misdemeanors.htm

There is also no statute of limitations for theft. However, it may be very difficult to get the district attorney to prosecute someone for a crime that occurred nearly 40 years ago.....especially if the person no longer lives in the state.

But, it is still possible to bring charges against him under MS law.
