For her part in cheating investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars, Elizabeth Holmes, the former CEO of Theranos, was given a sentence of more than 11 years in federal prison on Friday. In a case that U.S. District Judge Edward Davila called “troubling on so many levels,” Holmes, once hailed as a Silicon Valley wunderkind, received a prison term on April 27, 2023. A sobbing Holmes stood up and addressed the judge directly before Davila handed down his sentence. “There are so many things I would change if I could go back in time. My failures are regretted by every cell in my body “She stated this. Holmes’s defence team hoped for a modest prison sentence, or possibly home confinement. Holmes, 38, is due to report to prison in five months. After her release, she will be under legal surveillance for three years.
