The Criminal Statutes of Limitations by State #Infographic

Will you know the State's statutes of limitations for specific crimes? Although most states have statutes of limitations for the same crimes in effect, the year-limit can differ widely among states. Bribery, which has a ten-year statute of limitations in Rhode Island but just two years in Utah, is one such example. Another reason is that many states do not have any statutes of limitations in effect when it comes to arson, but Vermont has a penalty of eleven years and Wisconsin has only six years for it. There are even other serious offenses that both states recognize would have no limitations statute, one of which is murder at first degree.
