The sentence was 10 years and 12 months with the judge fully including the service in addition to his other sentence, which included five years of probation. Previously, Holmes had to answer questions about her program as part of a probation violation hearing, and she was sentenced to 12 months in prison.

In court, Holmes’ attorney argued that her blood testing methods weren’t illegal, and that her program was legitimate. However, the jury’s verdict was that her methods were inexact, more expensive, and gave results that didn’t correspond with the test itself. Holmes’ experts who testified on her behalf weren’t able to provide alternative ways to detect certain diseases or the accuracy of their tests.

Since Holmes’ conviction, Theranos has split up with its founder and begun testing blood in smaller batches, despite Holmes’ ability to convince investors the technology was ready to enter the market.
