A forensic examination of the girl’s shirt prior to trial indicated no biological evidence; yet years later testing from both an independent lab & the police department lab yielded a male DNA profile conclusively excluding Johnny. Full disclosure: The host of this show was the defense investigator working for Johnny’s attorney in the pre-trial investigation. Tune in to hear Johnny & his attorney, Melissa O’Connell, tell the story of this very unusual DNA exoneration.
