Legal Question in Criminal Law in Nevada

statute of limitations on a ticket?

I received have a friend who received a ticket for fishing w/o a license. He was unaware that a license was necassery. Regardless, he signed the ticket (promse to appear). He was wondering if there was a statute of limitations regarding his obligations to appear/pay the fine. I heard that he has had a ''bench warrant'' issued. Thank you in advance for your time.

Re: statute of limitations on a ticket?

The statute of limitations is irrelevant. The person has already been cited. He or she needs to quash the warrant and respond to the citation.

Re: statute of limitations on a ticket?

During your stint in the county jail you will be asked, "What are you in for?" You will be able to tell them, "Fishing without a license, and failure to appear." They will have a good laugh. But there will be other inmates in there for the same thing. Don't forget to write!
