Elizabeth Holmes: Judge recommends Texas prison for Theranos founder
What lesson can Silicon Valley learn from Elizabeth Holmes?
Today’s Esquire editor Aron Solomon discusses how Holmes’ verdict could impact the startup industry on ‘FOX Business Tonight.’
The federal judge who sentenced Elizabeth Holmes to more than 11 years in prison for her fraud convictions recommended the Theranos founder begin serving her time at a prison in Texas.
U.S. District Judge Edward Davila wrote in a court filing that Holmes must surrender to authorities April 27 and suggested she be designated to the Federal Prison Camp in Bryan, Texas.
While the decision is not final because the Bureau of Prisons will ultimately determine where Holmes ends up, one former inmate at the all-female facility says the place is "horrible."
Lynn Espejo, who served 24 months at Bryan over a fraud conviction and now works as an advocate for criminal justice reform, told FOX Business she "wouldn't say it's the hellhole of the BOP, but it's close."
