Statute Of Limitations

Question: What Is The Statute Of Limitations On Wisconsin Sex Crimes?

Answer: In the state of Wisconsin, the state can charge a person with a felony sexual assault for up to six years after the crime is said to have occurred. For a misdemeanor, they can charge it for up to three years afterword. And the big exception that swallows those rules is if a person claims to have been assaulted when they were under the age of 18, that charge can be brought until they turn 35. In other words, if a person says they were assaulted at age 5, they can charge the person they are accusing 30 years later.
