My question involves criminal law for the state of: GA
Okay, short and sweet with just the facts:
A scumbag is busted with Child Porn on his computer. A Search and Seizure is performed, and he is charged with Misdemeanor Possesion of Child Pornography.
What is the Max amount of time the police can take to charge him before they do not have a case against him under the Staute of Limitations, if it even runs for this offense, providing the scuzzbucket doesn't break the law while on bond in the meantime? Is there anything that can be done to speed the process of Prosecution up any?
