Something that people may not realize, is that there is actually a time limit for when a person can be charged with a specific crime. This time limit is referred to as a statute of limitations. This is done as a way to help protect people from being accused of things they did years ago. The practice comes from ancient Greece where a statute of limitations of 5 years was placed on all crimes save for homicide, for which there was no time limit.
The practice is still used in modern law today to help prevent abuse from occurring. However, instead of a flat 5 year limitation across all crimes, specific types of crimes have different statutes of limitations.
Why Statutes of Limitations Exist

When someone is arrested, they have to put into the system, or booked. This is basically where the person’s information is taken down and put into the police system. While this may sound like a simple process, it can take several hours to complete. After all, thousands of people are arrested daily, which means the police station is probably booking several people in at the same time.
During the booking process, a person can expect:
• An officer to take down the arrested person’s information.
• To have his or her mugshot taken.
• To have his or her fingerprints recorded.
• An officer to perform a full body search.
• To have any personal belongings on his or her person at the time of arrest to be confiscated.
After all of that has happened, the person will be placed behind bars to awa...

Social media has aided the police in making arrests. Do not put yourself in a position to be one of these people. You could post something where you think, “I can’t get in trouble for posting this.” You could have posted a photo of you staring at a breathtaking view, but to get to that view, you had to trespass onto private property. Posting this photo may not resonate as a risk to you because so many people before you have done it. Plus, the police have more pressing matters to attend to, right?
Believe it or not, the police are growing departments that are dedicated to filtering through social media...
