Reply to Adam Kirk's Post: To clarify, if you are wanted for but never arrested for grand larceny how long will the warrant stay active? Will it ever expire?

I'm sorry - I read the question wrong.

According to Tex. Crim. Proc. §12.01; 12.02; 12.05, the statute of limitations is 5 years from the date of the alleged act.
