My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
Arrested and charged with felony drug manufacturing in 6/04 and 1st degree forgery in 7/04. Released on bond and still have never been indicted after 6+ years. 2 case numbers came up during an employment background check conducted 11/2010 which shows both cases as "open & pending".
I never pressed the issue, nor did my attorney, because they seemed to have "gotten lost" but now I need to have these cases closed or thrown out. Isn't there a statute of limitations for how long the state / DA's office has to act on these charges? What would I need to do or who would I contact (besides a lawyer) to initiate an action on these?
