Between Due Process and Forgiveness: Revisiting Criminal Statutes of Limitations

Abstract:     
The Article seeks to explicate the purposes behind criminal statutes of limitations, especially in regard to serious crimes. It examines the coherency and persuasiveness of possible rationales for such statutes, focusing on personality change by the perpetrator as a possible explanation or justification for barring prosecution after the lapse of substantial time following the commission of a crime. The Article concludes that the passage of time by itself does not carry enough moral weight to overcome countervailing considerations.
