I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
The statute of limitations is different in every state. What state are you in?
The statute of limitations for a misdemeanor is 12 months in Tennessee. It does not run during any time that you were absent from the state.
With that said, the statute of limitations only refers to how long police have to file charges. When a warrant is issued, that means charges have already been filed. Warrants unfortunately do not expire, so as long as the warrants were dated no later than December 2014, they are still valid.
I apologize that this was probably not the Answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
