Statute of Limitations Saves Officer

Rock County DA David O'Leary says the statute of limitations prevents him from charging Tom Schaefer with perjury.

Officer Schaefer has been suspended with pay last month. He admitted that he had not identified himself as a police officer when he began shooting at Dan Tuescher in a 1995 burglary.

Tuescher had claimed self-defense and said he didn't fire his gun until someone began shooting at him.
