McCaslin: Keep the prosecution clock ticking on scam artists…

Sen. Bob McCaslin’s Senate Bill 5380 would keep the clock ticking longer for prosecution of thieves preying on the elderly.

As things stand now, the statute of limitations expires six years after the crime is committed. In caes where the thief tries to conceal the crime — who doesn’t? — McCaslin wants to keep the clock ticking to the time that the theft is discovered.

“People might not even know they’ve been swindled for years,” he said.
