Answer: Generally, yes. Most white-collar crimes are considered to be financial-type transactions and in federal courts the general statute of limitations on criminal cases or criminal charges is five years under 18 U.S.C. § 3282. Some individual crimes have their own statutes of limitations that must be looked at, but the general federal statute of limitations on criminal matters is five years, and most white-collar crimes, if not all, fall into that category. Wisconsin state felonies have a general six-year statute of limitations. Again, there are individual crimes that have their own statute of limitations, but most white-collar crime is going to fall under that either five year under the federal system, or six year under the Wisconsin state system statute of limitations.
