The Criminal Statutes of Limitations by State #Infographic

Do you know the State's limitations rules for particular crimes? While most states have statutes of limitations in place for the same offences, the year-limit can differ widely between states. One such example is bribery, which has a ten-year limitation rule in Rhode Island but just two years in Utah. Another explanation is that, when it comes to arson, many states do not have any statutes of limitations in place, but Vermont has an 11-year sentence and Wisconsin has just six years to do so. There are also other extreme offences that both states agree should have no statute of limitations, one of which is first degree murder.
