A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source:

When Does the Statute of Limitations Start Running?

The statute of limitations clock starts ticking when a cause of action “accrues.” This usually means when you “breach,” or break, the contract by not doing something you agreed to do, such as missing a payment - Source:

In California, the statute of limitations may start running on any one of these three events:

  • the due date of your missed payment (this is the most likely starting date)
  • the date of your last purchase, or
  • the date of your last payment.

In most cases, the statute of limitations calculation starts when your first missed payment becomes due. In some cases, however (the details of which are beyond the scope of this article), the statute begins running on either the date of your last purchase or when you made your last payment. Since these dates often occur close together, in most cases, it doesn’t make a difference. If, however, using one of these dates causes the statute of limitations to expire before your credit card company filed its lawsuit, it may be worthwhile to contact legal counsel to see if that start date applies to your situation.

A statute of limitations is a time limitation for bringing a lawsuit. This limitation is often different for different types of lawsuits. The time limitation for a lawsuit for a breach of a contract may be different than the time limitation for a lawsuit based on a car crash. This changes for criminal cases as well. Minor crimes may have a shorter statute of limitations than major crimes, which may have no limitation at all.

When does the limitations time clock start running?  Generally, the SOL begins after two things happen (more here):

  1. The wrongdoing occurs; and

  2. The wrongdoing causes harm.

Immediately after all of these things happen, the SOL clock starts to run (accrues).

  1. Wrongdoing: A legally enforceable duty (or promise) is violated (breached, broken).

  2. Harm: Damages, injuries legally allowed to be recovered for the specific type of wrongdoing.

  3. Causation: A significant or substantial connection (nexus) between the duty and the harm.

Hmm, i guess, this explanation is enough: if you apply for a credit card, especially during difficult economic times that might give rise to temptation, you should find it sobering to know that substantially inflating or, theoretically, even slightly embellishing your reported income can get you prosecuted under federal bank fraud statutes. The penalty is up to 30 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $1 million, for each instance.
