A statute of limitations was a law that placed a time limit on how long after the commission of a crime that criminal charges could be preferred.

On the planet Lissepia, bank robbery carried a statute of limitations of nine Earth years. That statute was the reason the conspirators of the Lissepian Mother's Day Heist Larell, Hain, Nahsk, and Krit did not attempt to recover the proceeds of the heist from fellow conspirator Morn, who had hidden them, until after the statute of limitations had expired. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
