Child Pornography Statute of Limitations

My close personal friend has been accused of illegally distributing, receiving child pornography on the internet. He admitted to the download, but no longer has any possession of these pics or his computer. How long is the federal statute of limitations for this charge at the federal level? He says he committed this crime over a year ago, so do the feds have a case against him? Is that statute of limitations up? I am actively telling him to rescind his confession or say it was done under duress. Can they convict him solely based on his confession?
