My 26 year old...

My 26 year old son stole my 20k ring in 2006. Of course, he lied to the police and they didn’t search him or make him do a lie detector. He and his wife are at odds and she just sent me a pic of the ring proving he has it. But now I’m worried the statute of limitations is up. It’s in FL. If I have the evidence, can the case be reopened and he arrested? It was in oct 2006.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you have any upcoming court dates on the theft charges?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a FL lawyer about this yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just asking about statute if limitations and if I can reopen the case from 2006 or is itvtoo kstevand he’s free.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
