A.

As unjust to x as it is to y.


The way you have constructed ("As unjust to x as it is to y") indicates a loss of parallelism (there is no "it is" in the first part). However this is not the case. A is indeed the correct answer and one may check the validity of parallelism in the following way:

Note that both the "it"s in the sentence act as placeholders. The sentence can be effectively simplified in the following way:

it is as unjust to punish a person who is innocent as it is to free a person who is guilty
=
It To punish a person who is innocent is as unjust as it to free a person who is guilty is .
=
X (to punish...) is an unjust as Y (to free...).

Thus A is the correct answer.
