Is there a statute of limitations for a felony drug charge that occurred in Texas in 1986?
1 Answer from Attorneys
It's three years now, and as far as I know was back then also. However, be aware that if this is some situation where there was a warrant issued, usually the grand jury will just go ahead and indict the case, at which point the statute of limitations stops mattering. The indictment is all that has to be done within the statute of limitations. On the other hand, practically speaking, it's pretty unlikely that a 25 year old drug case could still be successfully prosecuted.
