South Carolina Statutes of Limitations
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
For almost any legal proceeding, there's a time limit on when a case can be filed. State statute of limitations laws define the time period in which a lawsuit must be filed (in civil cases) and prohibit prosecutors from charging for the commission of a crime after the passage of a specified number of years (in criminal cases). Unlike many states, South Carolina has no statute of limitations on criminal cases, meaning prosecutors can file criminal charges at any time after a crime has been committed.
