Legal Time Limits For Filing Criminal Charges In New Jersey
The legal time limits for filing civil claims or criminal charges in the courts are known as statutes of limitations. Every state establishes its own statutes based upon the type of claim that is being filed or the type of criminal offense that is being charged.
In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for a prosecutor to file a criminal charge is dependent upon the type of crime that is alleged. For misdemeanors, including a petty offense or a disorderly persons offense, the statute of limitations in New Jersey is one year from the time the crime was allegedly committed. Felonies including bribery, official misconduct, and other offenses have a statute of limitations of seven years. The statute of limitations for other felonies is five years.
There are no statutory limits for crimes of murder and manslaughter. Individuals may be charged with these crimes at any time, including years after the crime was committed. If a person is fleeing justice, the statute of limitations does not run. The statute of limitations also does not run if the defendant is facing pending prosecution for the same conduct.
