Alabama has a long list of felonies, which probably includes domestic abuse, with no set statute of limitations. For those that do it is set at 3 years. The statute is met once an indictment or warrant is issued, regardless of whether it can be served immediately or not.

Can you be arrested for graffiti you did in the past in New York City?

I'm not completely, 100% sure, but I think that 5 years is the longest statute of limitations for any crime in the United States. Murder is the only crime for which there is no statute of limitations. Even rape and child sexual abuse have a 5-year statute of limitations. And I would imagine that the statute of limitations for petty crimes like graffiti would be much shorter. So, if it's been 5 years or more since you graffitied-up something, then I seriously doubt you need to worry about prosecution.
