What is the statute of limitations on extortion.
September 04, 2012
I received a red light ticket and I was wondering if a letter wanting $158.00 or I would then receive a utc? (ticket, I suppose), could be construed as extortion or blackmail. They want money or they'll give me a ticket. Either way they want some money and I believe that they are resorting to blackmail (extortion) to get it.
