A felony conviction can result in many years in jail, life in prison, or even the death penalty in the most serious cases, such as capital murder.

Our attorneys create unique defense strategies, look for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, and advocate for our clients throughout the legal process.
What Are the Criminal Statutes of Limitations?
The state of Mississippi has a criminal statute of limitations that sets a time limit on when a prosecutor must file former charges. After that time, a defendant cannot be charged with a crime. While misdemeanors have a two-year statute of limitations, this is not true for felonies. There is no statute of limitations for most felony charges. We can explain the law as it pertains to your situation and build the strongest possible defense for your case.
