Typically the Statute of Limitations on felony grand larceny is 5 years. Therefore, I don't think anything prior to that would be relevant. As a former prosecutor, I assume the D.A. will argue that the records are necessary to show a scheme to defraud.

There is no limit. Banks keep records for at least ten years but usually much more.
