A written statement is ok, but the states atty does not have to rely on it.  You need to go to court and explain the situaition.  Hopefully the states atty will see this as an ex seeking retibution.  If you do not have a valid license, then you should get your license restored with the DMV to show that you have a valid license now and that you are not likely going to be driving without a valid license again.
