what is the state of limitations for felony theft in NH?
For any felony offense in NH other than murder, the state must initiate prosecution of the offense within six years from when the last element of the crime was committed. A prosecution is initiated “on the day when a warrant or other process is issued, an indictment returned, or an information is filed, whichever is the earliest.” Note that if the suspect is “continuously absent from the state or has no reasonably ascertained place of abode or work” in the state that suspends the running of the statute of limitations. The statute of limitation is found in NH statute § 625:8 .
