Question Details:My husband was arrested over the weekend for a warrant from 7 years ago ssued in another state. He said he had not been in that city or county for 9-10 years. He is being held in jail in right now (in our state). I have called the city police, county police and the circuit court but no one seems to know what to do. I just keep being told to call someone else.
Different states have different felony statute of limitations for the filing of a lawsuit for a theft crime. Typically the time to file from when the offense occurred is within four (4) years.
In your husband's situation, the warrant for the arrest arising from a filed action shows a passage of seven (7) years from the filing of the lawsuit, not more than four (4) years from when the offense supposedly happened and the filing. I suggest that your husband consult with a criminal defense attorney to further help him on his matter.
