What is the Statute of Limitations on Misdemeanors in Tennessee? 

The statute of limitations refers to how long after the crime is committed that a victim can seek legal action, usually beginning on the day the crime is committed. Most misdemeanors have a statute of limitations of one year, so if you are being arrested for a crime committed long ago, you may have grounds to dismiss it.
