Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes was sentenced 11 years in prison for defrauding in the United States. Theranos was a startup that promised to revolutionize blood testing.
Holmes was convicted in January on four counts of investor fraud and conspiracy while at the helm of Theranos.
The verdict followed a four-month trial. Her downfall began in 2015 amid investigations from journalists and regulators over the medical company’s faulty product, which claimed to provide accurate information from tests using just a finger-prick of blood.
