The general rule in California is charges in a misdemeanor case must be filed within one year, but there are a number of exceptions. The applicable law is California Penal Code Sectino 802 at the following link: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=pen&group=00001-01000&file=799-805
