Ricky J. Stovall Incest Rape Case
This case involved the sexual assault and eventual pregnancy of Stovall’s then-teenage daughter, who went on to give birth to a baby girl. Paternity Testing Corporation was engaged to conduct genetic testing, and found a 99.99% probability of Stovall being both father and grandfather to the baby girl, with a 10,018,010:1 likelihood that Stovall was the father of the baby rather than some other man. Read about it in the news.

Jimmy Eacker Murder Trial
This case included an evidentiary hearing to decide whether the prosecution criminally withheld evidence. The defense was attempting to get Eacker a new trial or have his conviction dropped. Samples of the vaginal swab were sent to Paternity Testing Corporation by request of the Alaska Police Department to assist in this case. Read about it in the news.

Johnny Briscoe Murder Case
This was a wrongful conviction, and framed case for murder by an acquaintance. Paternity Testing Corporation processed the DNA samples from cigarettes that were overlooked by the St Louis Police Department's crime lab, to exonerate him. Read about it in the news.

Arbie Dean Williams Murder Case
This is the investigation into the death of 15-year-old Linda Strait in 1982. At the time, DNA testing was not available. In 1998, prosecutors sent the DNA-laced pillowcase to Paternity Testing Corporation. We were able to obtain a partial DNA profile from the pillowcase, which led prosecutors to a suspect, who was already incarcerated for another crime. Read about it in the news.

Anthony Woods Rape Case
This is a wrongful conviction case. Woods refused to admit wrongdoing, causing him to spend 18 years in prison, even though he would have been released earlier if he admitted to the crime. In 2005, Paternity Testing Corporation obtained a partial profile from the derogated sample from this case, exonerating Woods. Woods' conviction has since been overturned. Read about it in the news.
