How Long Do Prosecutors Have to Bring Charges Against Someone in New York?

For most criminal offenses in New York, the statute of limitations generally forbids the prosecution from charging a person with a crime after a certain period has elapsed.

The time is typically shorter for lesser crimes, while serious offenses may be pursued at any time going forward, without time constraints.


  • Petty offenses have a one-year statute of limitations.
  • Misdemeanor offenses have a two-year statute of limitations.
  • Most felony offenses have a five-year statute of limitations.

The purpose of the statute of limitation is to ensure convictions are based on reliable evidence.

For other types of serious offenses, there is no statute of limitations, which means the prosecutor may pursue charges against an individual no matter how much time has passed.

Although not an exhaustive list, those charges include:

  • Any class A felony.
  • Rape in the first degree.
  • Aggravated sexual abuse in the first degree.
  • Sexual conduct against a child in the first degree.

No matter how serious your situation may be, our criminal defense team believes your case is worth investigating to protect your future and your freedom. As your advocate, our Delhi criminal defense lawyer will investigate the charges and evidence filed against you to look for errors or other details that could be critical in the outcome of your case.

Our law firm’s priority is to create positive outcomes that align with our clients’ goals, so everyone understands the reality of their legal challenges, and how we can help them.

Do I Need a New York Criminal Defense Attorney If I Am Innocent?

At O’Brien & Eggleston PLLC, our Delaware County criminal defense attorneys know that innocent people are investigated and interviewed for their involvement in crimes more often than most people would imagine. Others are even arrested and charged with crimes they did not commit. This is one of the scariest scenarios anyone can face. The question is, why does it happen? And, if it happens to you, will you need a Delhi criminal defense attorney? Or will the truth set you free?

First, there are multiple reasons why innocent people are charged with crimes in New York including, but not limited to:

  • Eyewitness misidentification.
  • False confessions.
  • Flawed forensic evidence.
  • Perjured testimony.
  • Police and prosecutorial misconduct.

If you have been accused of a crime you did not commit or, worse, arrested and charged with a crime you did not commit, it is important to remember the prosecutor is not interested in viewing your case objectively or impartially. While counter to everything the U.S. Constitution stands for, the District Attorney’s Office is going to make you prove you are innocent — instead of fulfilling the burden of proof that you are guilty.

This means you need a criminal defense attorney no matter how innocent you are. Our Delhi criminal defense lawyers believe in your innocence and will build a case to protect you and maintain your innocence in court against your accusers.

If you find yourself in police custody for a crime you did not commit, do not allow law enforcement or the prosecutor’s office to tell you to contact a criminal defense attorney in Delhi means you have something to hide. Instead, make the first and smartest move to protect your rights, so we can assess your case objectively, and help prove you should have never been charged with this crime.
