    “And, furthermore, that some people have a sex life and others don’t just because some are more attractive than others. I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq

    Every state gets to decide the statute of limitations for their jurisdiction. The federal government has no jurisdiction. Finally though you may not agree with it but every US citizen is entitled to the right of speedy trial interpreted by the state judicial system. This was part of US constitution as it was very common in 1700's Europe to just throw people in jail for decades without being told why or ever having a trial.

    I looked and I think only Wyoming has no statute of limitations. Almost all states have statutes of limitations but they can vary dramatically depending on the crime.

    The US has a limited federal government with various rights granted to states. Pretty much the states can pass anything they want as long it does not violate the US constitution interpreted by the federal judicial system. This balance power is generally not understood by most Americans and obviously almost all non Americans.

    Yeah everybody here has a right to a speedy trial, however, there is only a statute of limitations on minor crimes, not major crimes like rape or murder.

    Except treason. Treason is the only major offence that has a statute of limitations. But I don't think anyone has been arrested for treason in over 100 years.
