I received a letter in November from the DMV in Louisiana

Customer Question

I received a letter in November from the DMV in Louisiana stating I owed fines dating back to September and December of 2002, I thought it was a joke. The closer the expiration date came the scareder I got so I called them on Dec. 7, 2015. The woman I spoke to said that no matter how old they were I was going to have to pay them, is this true? Also, in 2002 I was, mentally, in very bad shape, I wanted to kill my own doctor. I was hospitalized in December of 2002 with a serious bipolar disorder. I spent two weeks in the hospital. Most of 2002 was a blur to me. Can you please help me?
