Legal Answers
Q. what is the time frame an accuser can use in a crime? can a 30 day period be left open for one incident?
A: All allegations made by an accuser within the Statute of Limitations for the crime or crimes alleged

can be used to support a prosecution on those charges.
Q. In California can I file a motion to dismiss for failure to bring to trial(statute of limitations) without being Booked?
A: The Statute of Lim

itations is a defense to the criminal prosecution, so you must have an active criminal prosecution against you to raise it.
Q. Prison sentence 2yrs half time,with 10months credit,5 actual month in will you have 2months left to do or 7 months left,
A: When calculating credits you want to subtract actual time in custody from the total sentence imposed, then apply the half-time credits to determine the out date. So, roughly two years is 730 days, minus the 150 (5mo in), or 580, which would be 290 at half-time, or about 9 months
