Are you going to respond here?
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. Since this is a sexual assault and likely going to be filed as a felony, there is a 10 year statute of limitation.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What if it occurred in 2011?
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it could still be prosecuted, if they are going to charge this as a felony. It would have been 5 years since it occurred, so the State could have grounds to proceed. The victim could still report this and the matter can be investigated.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If it is a class 4 felony it's still 10 years?
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 1 year ago.

Yes. It is the sexual assault which makes it the 10 years, since it is a sex crime.
