Thank you so much, I am sure. I did check the www.leginfo.ca.gov website for the legislative codes in California. When I read the Penal Code 799 and subsequential codes thereafter, I was unable to find any clear answer to my original interrog, however.
I apologize for appearing dimwitted if that is the case, but when I read the section I was told had my answer, it stated that prosecution for any offense that results in a sentence of life in prison has no statute of limitations. That doesn't tell me anything. The following statutes discuss specific time limits for other offenses being maximum six years, then it goes down to within three years.
I am unclear on if attempted murder would be punished the same as an actual committed murder. The way the statute reads, it makes me think that an accomplished completed murder would have no statute of limitations. If the person was not actually killed, then the Penal Code 799 would not be applicable, correct?
Again, sorry for appearing mentally challenged, but I just didn't want to have to pay an attorney for a simple quick straightforward question in order to work on a chapter of this book which will probably stink anyways. So I guess I can shoot this book down the crapper, going by all your assistance. I cannot get an answer, so now what do I do? I looked where you said. You made me think. I don't understand why it is so difficult to find this out without paying $350 to someone. Nobody else posting questions is left without their question answered....
Should I rephrase it? Is there a difference within the justice system in interpreting murder from attempted murder other than there being a dead body in the case of attempted and completed murder? What's up California?
