Statues of Limitations for Sexual Assault: A State by State Comparison
This chart summarizes the applicable state statutes of limitations for the prosecution of various sexual assault crimes. The chart also highlights states that have a DNA exception to the statute of limitations. Though the specifics vary from state to state, a DNA exception allows for the tolling of a statute of limitations in cases where a perpetrator is later identified through DNA evidence. As of the date of this chart, 27 states have some form of a DNA exception that extends the time limit for prosecuting the offense.
