UCMJ has convicted and sentenced my husband of child abuse

UCMJ has convicted and sentenced my husband of child abuse (excessive spanking) of his 2 (now adult children) and an isolated child sexual touch charge on his (now adult step daughter) - all from a previous marriage. The charges are from 2000-2003. I thought that there was a 5 year statute of limitation and don't understand why it didn't apply here. It was not even raised during the courts martial.

two and a half years ago, i was accused of assault.

two and a half years ago, i was accused of sexual assault. I answered the questions of the civilian authorities and was let go. No charges were ever filed. I was never arrested. Now all this time later, I am being investigated by CID for this incident. Since that first time I have PCSed, and when I left that duty station, the flag was lifted and I was allowed to leave. Why would there be an investigation now?
