Alaska Statutes of Limitations

Every jurisdiction including the state of Alaska imposes time limits for filing civil or criminal charges against a defendant, referred to as the statutes of limitation. For instance, prosecutors in Alaska (and virtually every other state) have no time limit for murder charges, while misdemeanors have a five-year time limit in the state. Civil claims also are organized into categories for time limits, ranging from two to 10 years in Alaska. The purpose of the statutes of limitation is to prevent potential plaintiffs from indefinitely threatening lawsuits and also to help ensure the integrity of evidence and efficiency of process.
