18 U.S. Code § 3285 - Criminal contempt
No proceeding for criminal contempt within section 402 of this title shall be instituted against any person, corporation or association unless begun within one year from the date of the act complained of; nor shall any such proceeding be a bar to any criminal prosecution for the same act.
Word “criminal” was inserted before “contempt” in first line. Words “within section 402 of this title” were inserted after “contempt”.
Words “corporation or association” were inserted after “person”, thus embodying applicable definition of section 390a of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed. (See reviser’s note under section 402 of this title.)
