WWhat is the statute of limitations on a physical assault by a family member in the same household

My brother-in-law attacked me in my home and pulled out a kitchen knife and threatened to kill me. He is out of the house now and moving out of state as of this coming Sunday and on his way to Wichita he will never be coming back.

What is the statute of limitations on a physical assault

Justin’s Answer

It depends on how the crime is charged: Three years for a felony, 1 year for a misdemeanor. But that time doesn’t run if the defendant is fleeing from prosecution. If you suspect that he is trying to flee the jurisdiction, you can contact the police.
