Is there a statute of limitations on restitution?

About 23 years ago, I was convicted of covert, ordered to pay restitution and placed on probation. My probation was never revoked for failure to pay and now all these years later I got a letter saying that I owe it now.

It is my understanding that in the state of Michigan there is no statute of limitations on Criminal restiution. that would mean that the answer hee is no. I would take the letters seriously and contact an attorney to discuss your options.
