The statute of limitations varies according to the exact charge and most crimes can be charged in more than one way depending on the facts. However, for most federal crimes that would fit your facts it would be a a 5 year statute of limitations from the date the offense was committed. A person would have to be indicted within that 5 year time period.

However, a Grand Jury can still subpoena records back before the 5 years, they just are not supposed to indict on anything that occurred more than 5 years before.

There is an article at

which explains the crimes that have longer statutes of limitations, but none of those seem to apply based on the facts you have recited.
