    In Maryland that offense just not have a statute of limitations. 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. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. Consider seeking a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Beware that online posts are not confidential. If somehow the prosecution were to find your post, then it might be used in evidence against you.

    The statute of limitations only applies to the time the prosecutor has to file charges from the date of the offense. As long as they filed it in time and a warrant is issued, that will be valid forever if filed within the statute of limitations so you can't outrun or outlast a warrant. The longer you wait the worse it gets.
