    Answered . I am going to take a stab at this one.

    Somebody was convicted on evidence provided (or not provided) by a bad cop. That bad cop is now in jail. I am assuming you are in jail as well. If that is the case you should speak with 1.) a criminal appellate attorney and/or 2.) an attorney that handles post-conviction relief matters in your jurisdiction. There may be relief for you in the form of habeas corpus.

    You should also consult an attorney who handles civil rights matters as you may have a claim under federal law.

    If you are out of jail, there may be other remedies depending on your jurisdiction. One such remedy is petitioning the court for a common law writ of coram nobis. There may also be statutory expungement remedies.
