Customer Question

My grandson was tried and convicted, it will be 7 yrs. later this month, it didn't complete his probation. He believes that the statute of limitation will be up. He is now in jail and will be transferred ti prison for 3 years. Is it correct that after the 7yrs. he cannot be tried?

If he's already been tried and convicted, the statute of limitations no longer applies.
