Yes, New York State has statutes of limitations on felony prosecution. Most NYS felonies have a 3 year statute of limitations, which would begin to run from the commission of the crime. Felonies with possible sentences of 8 years of imprisonment or more have 6 year statutes of limitations. There are a few with no statutes of limitations, but these are capital offenses, offenses that carry a life sentence and the embezzlement of public funds.

If the events you are discussing took place in 2001, they are time barred today. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
