The statue of limitations could in theory get them past some of the initial crimes; but the problem with obstructing an investigation is that the statute of limitations doesn't start running until the last act in the cover up is completed. As strategies go that is rarely a winner since any crime that has a statute of limitations less than 4 years would usually be much less serious than the charges related to a cover-up.
