    California charges

    I was talking to a friend in California that is a Lawyer and she told me that the Statue of Limitations should have already expired on the charges against John Carr. Felony Child Porn has a 3 year Statue and Misdemeaner has a 1 year Statue


    Existing Law: There is a 3-year statute of limitations for felony offenses involving child pornography, which commences on the date of the offense. There is a one-year statute of limitations for misdemeanor offenses involving child pornography and unlawful videotaping, which commences on the date of the offense.


    Has anyone found anything on the California Case and if the warrents are still valid?

    I don't know if you saw my other post, but I did a little snooping and I think a misdemeanor in CA is for possession and a felony is possession with distribution.

    I believe the statue of limitations would not be relevant once the person was charged. You can't get away with something by going into hiding for x number of years.

    The Statue of Limitations begins from the point of discovery not the date of the crime.

    Yes, but, if I am not mistaken, since he skipped before his rearrest for parole violation, and missed his January, 2002 trial, the statute of limitations clock stopped.

    wait what parole?..i missed that.
    Do you mean probation? But even if you do, probation for what? Probation violation would be a whole other charge ,as well as, a bench warrant for FTA.

    That was my understanding of what's been reported FWIW he failed to show up to court on the charges (porn) so a bench warrant was issued. I don't think bench warrants just go away.

    It was not probation or parole he violated it was the terms of his supervised release.

    oh thanks that is helpful. So looks to me as though he violated the tems of his release, as well as, an FTA warrant.

    Oct. 5: After a series of court hearings, Karr was released from jail, but was ordered to report to a probation officer and avoid child pornography, children and places where children congregate, such as schools, beaches and parks The court records in the case were sealed.

    _ November: A judge issues a restraining order, compelling Karr to stay 100 yards away from his wife and three children for three years.

    _ December: A warrant was issued for Karr's arrest after authorities said he violated the terms of his supervised release.

    Got it thanks Buzz.. when you said parole, i thought he had been to prison and I was really confused.
    But even so, i still didn't realize he was on a release program, even from jail.
