My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your Statute of Limitations question regarding your legal issue.
To begin with, I believe it is important to clarify one point. The Statute of Limitations is the law that requires charges be filed for a specific offense within a certain time period. Generally, if charges are not filed by the end of that time period, charges cannot be filed (or will be barred by the Statute of Limitations).
273.5(a), as you are aware, is punishable by imprisonment of 2-4 years. The Statute of Limitations for felonies punishable by imprisonment of 2-4 years is 3 years from the date of the alleged offense.
Now, once charges are indeed filed within the requisite timeframe, the Statute of Limitations is no longer applicable (as the DA's Office has complied with the Statute of Limitations requirement). Anything that happens after that (probation and its unsuccessful completion) has no bearing on the Statute of Limitations.
Therefore, based on the information you have provided, the Statute of Limitations would not apply as it appears that the person in your question had been charged within the requisite 3 year period for the offense.
Do you have any follow up questions thus far?
