Re: statue of limitations
Assault BI is a Class a Misdemeanor and has a two year statute of limitation. There are several enhancement provisions for this statute which make it a third degree felony which would carry a three year statue of limitation.
Aggravated Assault is either a first or second degree felony depending on the offense and carries a three year statute of limitation.
It is important to remember that if an information (misdemeanor) or indictment (felony) is in place it tolls the statute of limitation while in place.
