Here is one of many articles describing the criminal charges that have been laid again various members of the Bonanno crime family including some charges with respect to the 1978 ‘Lufthansa Heist’ featured in the best movie ever made, Goodfellas.
The charges dating back to “Lufthansa” include (according to the Reuters article linked above) “robbery, conspiracy and other crimes tied to the 1978 heist”.
And, here is a summary of the statutes of limitations in the several states. I note that in New York, where the charges were made, the maximum time is stated to be five years (except for murder for which there is no limit).
What am I missing here? Other than for murder, how can anyone be charged for a crime(s) that occurred over 35 years ago?
