Not a bad idea actually, I would totally support that as a deterrent to abuse by our justice system. Anyone convicted of any process crime as a result of an investigation based on false pretenses automatically gets a get out of jail free card. It's not holding overzealous and unscrupulous prosecutors and the like accountable for their actions and making them criminally liable as they should be, but it's a move in the right direction.
Your justice system is like that because you elect judges and prosecutors, who go on to be pure politicians, so for decades you have had this "law and order" obsession.
Some of these "process crimes" are of course ridiculous, however what you're proposing is a direct road to dictatorship. If you can tamper with evidence and witnesses, then all court cases will end up as "abuse" since the prosecution's case will be destroyed.
