Convicted of a crime that never happened!!!

An important element that helped convicted Hank was the beer bottles that Tanya said Hank threw out the car window after he finished drinking from them, and a blanket that Tanya said she spit up on after she said Hank had oral sex with her on the blanked. These items had never been tested until 2017; that was 35 years after Hank had been convicted of this "supposed" crime.
After a complete and thorough review of the testing done of the beer bottles and blanket by Bode Cellmark Forensics conducted by Dr. Steven Laken (resume); Dr Laken released his Overall Conclusion that stated:
" My opinion is that Mr. Houghton is excluded as contributing DNA to the beer bottle because his DNA profile is not present on the bottle. The profile from the beer bottles is likely from a second male as three of the beer bottles have a DNA profile consistent with a male that is not Mr. Houghton. The DNA found on the blanket attributable to Mr. Houghton likely does not contain DNA from a female and there is no profile that I would expect to have originated from a female who spit out ejaculate from her mouth."
These DNA results are consistent with a kidnap and rape that Hank was wrongfully convicted of, that we repeatedly have said over the past 37 years NEVER occurred. Stated more plainly there NEVER was a crime, this was nothing more than a frame up of Hank to prevent him from spilling the beans on a child pornography ring that Tanya's step father was conducting.
Here is a detailed review of Dr. Laken's of the testing done by Bode Cellmark Forensics:
