2 years ago I did something I'm not proud of and hit someone and just wanted to check and see what the statute of limitations is in California on assault. I want to make sure this won't come back and bite me in the butt a few years down the line.

Thanks

My response:

You're clear, you escaped, you're freeeeeee !! Yea, Yea, Yea !! That's the good news. Assault and Battery has a one year S.O.L. in California.

Now, for the bad news. The victim may have filed a lawsuit "just within" the S.O.L., but just hasn't served the Summons & Complaint yet. I'd call the courthouse where the incident took place, or where you lived, or where the victim lived, and ask the Clerk if there's a case on file called [Victim Name] versus [Your Name]. If so, get a copy and bring it to your attorney.
