Thank you for choosing JustAnswer. I would like to help, if I may, if you would be kind enough to clarify your question.
Q. Do I understand you correctly that you were convicted of a crime which you did not commit?
Q. And while you were serving the sentence imposed on you, you were subjected to cruel and unusual punishment?
I will await your Reply and clarification,

Thank you for your information,
I would suggest calling the Bar Association of the county in which you live in Vermont and asking for their "Lawyer Referral Service". Tell them your situation and ask them to give you several names of attorneys who can handle your case.
Call the attorneys, speak to them, ask questions, ask for references; then choose the one who gives you the most complete answers, does not hedge, has the most exeprience and the one with whom you feel the most comfortable.
Please press the GREEN "ACCEPT" button so that I receive credit for my time and effort in assisting you.
Leaving positive Feedback, Bonus, etc., are always appreciated.
