Statute of Limitations are a Girl’s Best Friend: Five-year Trial of Marion True Ends

The groundbreaking criminal trial of former Getty Museum antiquities curator Marion True ended in a bureaucratic whimper on October 13, 2010 in Rome when the judged ended the proceedings, ruling that the statute of limitations had expired on the criminal charges that she had conspired to traffic in looted art.

True was charged by an Italian prosecutor in 2005, marking the first time an American museum official had been criminally charged by a foreign government.
