Arizona Supreme Court To Review Rape Statute Of Limitations

The issue being reviewed is whether a current Arizona law which eliminates the statute of limitations in sexual assaults when the defendant is unknown also apply to crimes committed before the new law was put into effect on Jan. 1, 1997.

The lower court ruled that the new law doesn't apply and the defendant, identified via a DNA match 11 years after the rape cannot be prosecuted.
