Elizabeth Holmes, the former CEO of Theranos, has been captured in a photograph for the first time since commencing her 11-year prison term. The image portrays Holmes in the confines of a prison yard, donning plain khaki attire, with her hair cascading loosely and wearing glasses.
Holmes was convicted on four counts of fraud, leading to her sentencing of 11 years behind bars. The recently released pictures, taken by Splash News and published on June 2 by DailyMail.com, offer a significant glimpse into Holmes’ transformed appearance as she embarks on her incarcerated journey.
Former healthcare mogul Elizabeth Holmes, who was once regarded as the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, has begun her prison term at the Federal Prison Camp in Bryan, Texas. The facility is a minimum-security women’s prison where Holmes will be subjected to the institution’s rules and regulations.
As an inmate, Holmes is obligated to adhere to a daily routine that includes waking up at 6 a.m. She must wear standard khaki attire and is prohibited from wearing any jewelry valued at over $100, as outlined in the inmate admission and orientation handbook. Additionally, she will be assigned a prison job involving food packing on a factory line, which could pay as little as 12 cents per hour.
Holmes’ downfall commenced in 2015 when The Wall Street Journal exposed her deceptive practices surrounding the capabilities of Theranos machines, leading to the erosion of her once esteemed reputation. In January of the previous year, Holmes was convicted on four counts of fraud and conspiracy. Alongside her ex-boyfriend Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, she was ordered to pay $452 million to the victims affected by the Theranos-related frauds.
Although requested for comment, Holmes’ representative has not yet responded outside of regular business hours.
