Stuart v. Johnson
In Stuart v. Johnson, 192 Ark. 757, 94 S.W.2d 715 (1936), Stuart was arrested in Craighead County upon a warrant charging her with having committed embezzlement in the state of Oklahoma and with having fled from that State.
Stuart argued that the offense charged was barred by the statute of limitations. The supreme court stated: "That may be, or she may have been a fugitive so as to prevent the statute bar from attaching. At any rate, that is a matter of defense which may be offered in defense of the charge, but not here." Id.
