Alleged 1100 Words You Need

/əˈledʒd/ (adj)

something that has been theorized or assumed but not yet proved, unproven, suspected, presumed, so-called, purported, apparent:

In criminal law, an “allegation” is an unproven accusation. For example, a person suspected or accused of committing the offense of burglary may be referred to as an“alleged burglar.” The word “burglar” should not be used alone without “alleged” unless the accused entered a plea of guilty or no contest, or unless he has already been convicted at trial.

We use the term “alleged” because it is not uncommon for a person to be falsely accused of a crime and also because the presumption of innocence is a fundamental right in all modern nations, including the United States.

A statute of limitations is a law that sets the maximum time the parties involved have to initiate legal proceedings from the date of an alleged offense, whether civil or criminal. However, the length of time the statute allows for a victim to bring legal action against the suspected wrong-doer can vary from one jurisdiction to another.
