The most Perdock could reasonably be charged with is Involuntary Manslaughter; max four year sentence, so a three-year Statute of Limitations (according to FindLaw). This was in fact all discussed at some length back when Mr. Dinius was on trial. It stinks, but so do lots of things.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
