Readers Poll

What do you think of California's statutes of limitations on crimes?

  • A limit should not exist. The victim of a crime should be allowed to report it whenever he/she is ready.
  • The deadlines should be extended, but it's important to have some limits.
  • The statutes are fine as is.
  • Evidence is lost as time goes on. If you can't report a crime right away, don't report at all.
