Don't get me wrong. I frequently get extremely irritated with prosecutors who wait forever and a day to bring cases against my clients. The passage of time favors the side that has already concluded its investigation and makes it hard for the defense to construct an exculpatory narrative under the best of circumstances, to say nothing of defendants who don't have money.Sam the Centipede wrote: ↑Thu Sep 05, 2019 9:05 amI don't see any problem or cause for concern in the prosecutors respecting statute of limitations deadlines.

There might be a place for statutes of limitations but they shouldn't be a Stay Out Of Jail Free card for rich folk.
I have absolutely no objection to a delayed prosecution against a privileged little shit like Wohl, who will (or at least should) have access to the best possible defense thanks to daddy. Unless daddy drinks the Kool Aid and hires someone like Larry Klayman.
The kid who has made a living by publicly accusing people of higher station than himself of criminality - when he isn't also defrauding people - is finding out that what comes around, goes around. My heart breaks for him.
