Abstract: In this paper we show that the prime length of a crossed product $ R*G$, where $ R$ is a right Noetherian ring and $ G$ is a polycyclic-by-finite group, is bounded by the plinth length of $ G$ and the prime length of $ R$. We begin by considering prime ideals in group rings of finitely generated Abelian groups, and generalize a theorem of J. E. Roseblade. We then use the description of prime ideals in crossed products given by D. S. Passman to achieve the result.
