Dear Customer

North Carolina has no statute of limitations for felonies but does have a two-year statute of limitations for misdemeanors. (G.S. 15-1) The statute of limitations begins to run on the date of the offense and continues to run until the issuance of an arrest warrant, indictment, or other criminal process.

Dear Customer

On a charge which 5 years old, I would consult with an attorney. Witnesses may not be available, and evidence might have been destroyed or lost. You might have a good chance of getting a good plea offer, because I doubt that the state can proceed with trial.
