What is the name of your state? Texas

In 2002, I was charged with one 3rd degree felony theft count (More than $20,000 but less than $100,000) containing multiple complainants. Three years later, after realizing technical errors within the original indictment, the DA wants to drop the charges and re-file the case as multiple misdemeanor charges. Does the 2 year misdemeanor Statue of Limitations apply in this case?
