I would like to contribute some work to the anthology or whatever, but
I was wondering if anyone had any information on the Statute of
Limitations on crimes committed during that period. I have been working
on a novel for quite along time, but have got conflicting information on
the Statute of Limitations and obviously don't want to publish things
that may compromise mine or other peoples freedom. Anyone real familiar
with this?

As a bookseller specializing in 1960s countercultural materials, my opinion is that there were numerous sensationalistic novels published in the late 60s/early-mid 70s but didn't find much of a market, hence their relative obscurity. (A sampling follows.) I am in agreement that there has been relatively nothing of recent publication concerning 'The '60s' in novelized form.
