What is the Statute of Limitations for bad checks?

Question Details:

My husband was arrested last week during a routine drivers license check in SC. Apparently, he wrote a bad check 10 years ago for $33.11, and a warrant was issued in June 2001. He has no memory of the check, although he moved around during that time, and may not have received his mail. What puzzles me, is that he has been in trouble for other things since then, received traffic tickets, been to jail, etc., all in this same state. Yet, this was never even brought up. Why would they wait until now?
