A first offense (unless previously convicted of lewd acts with a child under 14) is generally a misdemeanor, and prosecution must be begun within one year. Cal. Pen. Code §§ 19, 314, 802(a). A second offense can be treated as a felony and imprisonment imposed, so the statute of limitations is three years. Cal. Pen. Code §§ 314, 801.
