I am sorry for this dilemma.IF you can prove that the state knew or should have known you were innocent but prosecuted you regardless?Then you can sue for a violation of your civil rights
This is not an easy thing to do...the state has discretion. So if they had evidence you committed a crime, they were free to bring criminal charges.That said, if there really was no evidence...and the state knew, or reasonably should have known you were innocent but brought charges? You can sue them for a violation of your civil rights
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
