Unfortunately there is nothing you can do right now.  All you can do is hoe that nothing happens.  Keep checking your mail.  Usually there si a statute of limitations on these crimes which is anywhere from 1-3 years.  I would just wait and see what happens.  the worst case is that you have to go to court and are looking at paying a fine at best.
