Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you were held in jail wrongfully, without any statutory authority, you can indeed sue for that wrongful incarceration and also civil rights violations for false imprisonment and damages for that imprisonment. It is going to take a local civil rights attorney to represent you in court, but from what you are saying, if there is the evidence you mentioned above, you should be able to get one to take up your case. You can find a local civil rights attorney (in WY you may have to search state wide, because they do not have many attorneys in the whole state) http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com
