The Guardian » Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes again delays start of 11-year prison term

From November 18, 2022 Wall Street Journal »

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes reportedly told a Walgreens consultant that “They don’t put pretty people like me in jail,” according to a government filing ahead of the sentencing hearing Friday.

The remark came after a consultant for Walgreens Boots Alliance had warned Ms. Holmes that she could be responsible for killing someone if her lab produced bad test results, the filing shows.

According to Kevin Hunter, the Walgreens former lab consultant, Ms. Holmes made the remark to a group of Walgreens representatives during a video conference in the late summer of 2010. The Walgreens team had just finished a visit to Theranos’s facility in Palo Alto, Calif., Mr. Hunter said in an interview Friday with The Wall Street Journal, adding that he raised concerns about the technology during the call.
