Alternate allele filtering?

I am trying to call Het as: Ref allele 10-90% or Alt allele 10-90. I have four samples. If one sample is Het, that location is preserved if criteria for Het (as earlier) and Homozygous (> 90% of Alt or Ref allele) at other three locations are met. Is there any simple way to achieve this?

I was just trying SelectVariants to filter with these criteria and tried to see if things works. I used <5% alternate allele for first sample and still can see locations with > 5% alt allele. Here are the code and output. please let me know if I am doing wrong? Thanks

$java -jar $gatk -T SelectVariants -R 8771mapped_Pcap_211contigs.fasta -V snps_after_hardFilter_20x.vcf -o snps_after_hardFilter_20x_alt10_allHet.vcf -select 'vc.getGenotype("7290_R1").getAD().1 / vc.getGenotype("7290_R1").getDP() < 0.05'

I got alt allele of 23/92 = 0.25
