if unknowingly i commited bigamy in 2006. when statue of limitation

This answer was rated:

if unknowingly i commited bigamy in 2006. when statue of limitation was 3 years for that crime which is raised to 7 years in 2009. which statue of limitation would my charges go under?
Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

The correct statute of limitations would be the statute of limitations that applied in 2006. So, in your case it would be 3 years.

As an aside, if you had no intent to commit bigamy, then you could not be convicted anyway.

Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, your positive feedback is much appreciated.

Hi again. Sure, I will verify the statute of limitations:

Under Texas Crim. Proc. §12.01(7), it is 3 years (both now and in 2006).
