New Jersey’s Statute Of Limitations For Criminal Charges
Every state has legal deadlines for filing claims in the courts, known as statutes of limitations. These statutes vary from one state to the next and depend upon the type of civil claim or criminal charge that is being filed. The statute of limitations for a prosecutor to file a criminal charge in New Jersey varies depending upon the actual type of alleged crime.
The statute of limitations for misdemeanors in New Jersey — which includes a disorderly persons offense or a petty offense — is one year. The statute of limitations for felonies — including official misconduct, bribery, and other offenses — is seven years from the time the crime was committed. Other felonies have a statute of limitations of five years.
Crimes such as manslaughter and murder have no legal time limit. A prosecutor can file a charge at any point in time, even years after the alleged crime took place. If prosecution is pending against the defendant for the same conduct, or if the individual is fleeing justice, then the statute of limitations does not run.
