Understanding New Jersey’s Statutory Deadlines For Filing A Criminal Charge

New Jersey — like all other states — has statutory deadlines for prosecutors to bring criminal charges against an individual, as well as for someone to file a claim in the civil courts. Known as 

statutes of limitations, these deadlines vary from one state to the next. The statute of limitations for criminal charges in New Jersey depends upon the type of alleged crime. 

Specifically, New Jersey’s statutory deadlines are as follows:

  • If the charge is a crime of manslaughter or murder, New Jersey does not impose any legal time limit; these charges may be brought at any time, including years after the alleged crime was committed 
  • The statute of limitations for felonies — including official misconduct, bribery, and related offenses — is seven years from the time the crime was committed
  • For other felonies, the statute of limitations is five years
  • Misdemeanors, including disorderly persons offenses or petty offenses, have a statute of limitations of one year
  • If an individual is fleeing justice or if prosecution is pending for the same conduct against this individual, the statute of limitations does not run in New Jersey
