In federal court the statute of limitations is five years, but in Maryland courts there is no statute of limitations for an offense that a person might have to serve time in the penitentiary. Generally that is offenses which carry more than a year in jail. All felony drug offenses in Maryland carry sentences greater than a year in jail. An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial.
