1. The defendant is out of the country for an extended period of time.
2. The defendant engages in fraudulent conduct to hide evidence that should have been made available before the statute of limitations expired.
3. There was a delay in the discovery of the actual injury or harm that led to the criminal charge due to circumstances outside the prosecution's control.
Yes, but those tolling issues are usually dealt with in the charging instrument or in a response to a motion to dismiss. This is the first time I’ve heard of getting a star chamber ex parte sealed order in this regard which was hidden from the defendant’s attorney even after he entered the case.
I wonder if the ink was dry when he got them.
Five years of investigation and no indictments and then, Shazaam! new evidence suddenly appears to justify extending the statute of limitations. It seems to me Manafort and the judge should really be asking about a possible referral for prosecution of Mueller and his people for conspiracy to violate Manafort's civil rights.
