    No. My mother has been charged with crime. The check was written in 2002, but I am not sure yet how long the warrant has been out.

    misdemeanor = 2 years from the date the check was written
    IBC and theft by check under $1,500.00 are both misdemeanors.

    felony = 5 years from the date the check was written
    A felony is generally charged when a check is exchanged for property whose value is $1,500.00 or more or includes firearms, sheep, cattle, horses, or exotic animals.

    The Statute of Limitations runs until the case is either indicted by the Grand Jury or signed by the judge in the case of a misdemeanor. Once the case is filed, the Statute of Limitations no longer applies except if the case must be refiled.
