Suppose a president committed crimes while in office, though these crimes were not discovered until after he left. Did he just get a "Get out of jail free" card?

I do not want prosecutions of political enemies (nor refusal of prosecutions of political friends) to be based on partisanship. But I'll accept the possibility of that before I'd accept that a president cannot be prosecuted for any crimes that happened prior to or during his administration after he leaves office.
