Can anyone tell me the Statue of Limitations for a State Jail Felony?

What's a "state jail felony"?

Unique to Texas, State Jail felony facilities were created by the legislature in 1993. This new program initiative was intended to serve several purposes.

First, it created a new class for felony offenses -- state jail felonies.

Second, it was to increase the time served by violent offenders.

Third, it was anticipated that the outcome of such major revisions would result in reduced pressures on the prison population.

Fourth, it supported community involvement and positive reintegration of offenders into their communities by including an array of programming to address offender risks/needs.
