A: Its hard to answer this without lots more detail, but you need to talk to a good lawyer right away.

This absolutely casts serious doubt on your conviction and it may be that you are entitled to a new trial. You need a real lawyer now, do not wait. If you can't afford a lawyer write or call the public defender's office where you went to court. If that fails write a letter to the judge who oversaw your case. You can send it to the clerks office or even take it there. You really need a good lawyer to advise you.
