The Statute of Limitations on Lance ArmstrongBy Michael Frank on December 20th, 2011
The jury is literally out on whether Lance broke the law, and the curious may wonder just how long it can remain out before Lance is innocent by lack of proof that he’s culpable. The answer, as you’d expect, is complicated. First, those reading the tea leaves suspect that the feds are trying to tie Armstrong not to doping in particular, but to trafficking across state and international borders. If that’s the case the statute of limitations is much longer, and in theory the anvil hanging over the former TdF grand champion’s head could continue as a threat for years to come.
