Statute of Limitations on Misdemeanors

Does anyone know how long a state has to prosecute a misdemeanor offense? If you don't know, do you know any resources which would help me find out?

To be specific, a friend of mine got an underage drinking ticket in Indiana in May. She hasn't heard from the state and has tried to contact them with no results.

My position is that she should assume she will be charged and have to go to court. I told her keep the money for fines and court set aside for a while. What I am hoping is to find some evidence of the statute so I can convince her to hold onto her cash until the ticket arrives.

Any help would be appreciated.
