Who is Elizabeth Holmes? 

Holmes was once portrayed as "the following Steve Jobs." Now she's confronting 20 years of prison time for wire extortion. 

Be that as it may, we're losing track of the main issue at hand. How about we returned to 2003 when this story started. 

Holmes dropped out of Stanford University in 2003 to dispatch the new business Theranos. The organization asserted it could offer increasingly active and complete blood tests for a wide range of infirmities — cholesterol, malignancy, and diabetes and so on — without expecting individuals to visit a specialist's office. 

With the prick of a finger, these thorough tests should be possible, no vials of blood or visits to a specialist's office required.

Then pursued an extortion examination by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Holmes total assets moved toward becoming $0 when the estimation of Theranos plunged. 


In June 2018, Holmes and the previous president and COO of Theranos, Ramesh "Bright" Balwani, was accused of nine tallies of wire misrepresentation and two checks of trick to submit wire extortion by the U.S. Lead prosecutor for the Northern District of California.

Both could look as long as 20 years in prison and impressive fines whenever sentenced.
