It was a felony that occured a long time ago and charges were brought against after 8 months.
ok thanks. While incarcerated I was arrested.and a resulting probation violation occured. However, the conditions of probation were"on and after I serve my sentence then i would be subject to probation conditions and violations not before I finished. In other words I was not on probation while incarcerated sevring a "before and then"(not sure of terminology)
So as it relates to the original question; does the statute of limitations change if arrested and then incarcerated? in other words does the clock start ticking the moment one is being held especially if the that person shouldnt have been held due to an illegal or improper probation and would habeous corpus come into play ?
