What is the statue of limitation for statutory rape in California?

According to a Google search the statute of limitations for statutory rape is one to three years. As for evidence, no corroborating evidence is needed. Today the person who is the victim only has to say that it happened. No DNA. No witnesses. Unless you can prove somehow that it did not happen you are toast. I know that is not the way it is supposed to be. But today's standards for sexual offenses have turned the system backwards. The accuser does not have to have any evidence. The state can prosecute on the accuser's word alone. The accused has to prove their case. Of course with any legal question you should consult with an attorney in your local jurisdiction.
