IF somebody filed a police report how much time do they have to file charges ?
Somebody filed a police report for being punched in the nose from a family member. How much time do they have to file charges? Does it go away after 48 hours?

The state has 3 years for felonies, 1 year for misdemeanors, and 6 months for infractions to file their case. Domestic assault is a serious charge as even a municipal conviction can restrict your 2nd amendment rights. Don't talk about the case with anyone but an attorney.
