There is no specified "Statute of Limitations" listed in the law regarding these types of violations. Because a Statute of Limitations must be specifically specified, its absence means that there is not one.
HOWEVER, there is an concept in law called "Laches." Laches is an equitable defense that states if too much time has passed such that a person accused of a violation is not able to properly defend themselves (because evidence has been lost, and memories faded) then it is a violation of due process to require the accused to answer such allegations of misconduct.
Laches is what is called an "affirmative defense." This means you have to assert it and prove that you have been "prejudiced in being able to defend yourself due to the excessive passage of time, the loss of memory and loss of other defensive evidence."
I hope the information I provide is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
