Nj Sex Offenders Registry

What is the statute of limitations on lewdness with a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor?

What is the statute of limitations on these crimes in ny and nj and can anything be done if the statute has run. Can the person be still registered as a sex offender? I’ve been reading about sex offenders and the registry seems to contain people who have commited crimes recently.

To be listed as a sex offender you have to be convicted of a crime. So if the SoL has run out then no.
