A statue of limitations is a set time limit during which a lawsuit can be filed. Statutes of limitations vary from offense to offense and differ in each state.
In the State of Texas, there is a five- to seven-year statute of limitations for most felony offenses. However, there is no statute of limitations for most sex crimes against children. Regardless of how many years have passed since the alleged crime occurred, charges can be filed the rest of your life.
If you learn that you are being accused of or investigated for an alleged sex crime that occurred years ago, time is not on your side. It is very important that you seek the assistance of an experienced sex crimes attorney right away.
