PEOPLE v. ATHAR, D037485

Defendant's failure to raise a limitations defense in trial court prevents him from raising the issue for the first time on appeal, and because the statute of limitations is not an essential element of a conspiracy offense, any failure to instruct did not violate the federal constitution.
