    SAN JOSE, Calif. — Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, the one-time billionaire and darling of Silicon Valley who promised a revolutionary blood-testing technology, has been found guilty of four charges in her criminal fraud trial.

    The jury of eight men and four women were handed the case in mid-December after three months of proceedings and testimony from 32 witnesses. Deliberations lasted more than 50 hours over seven days.

    In the end, the jurors convicted Holmes, 37, of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and three counts of wire fraud against specific investors. U.S. District Court Judge Edward Davila will sentence Holmes at a later date. She faces up to 20 years in prison.

    Holmes was found not guilty on four charges and the jury determined there was no verdict on the other three. Jurors told Davila earlier Monday that they were deadlocked on three of the 11 charges. Davila later declared a mistrial on those three counts and scheduled a status meeting for next Monday.

    Once heralded as the next Steve Jobs, Holmes raised $945 million from high-profile investors including the family of Betsy DeVos, Rupert Murdoch and the Walmart-founding Walton family. Theranos, at its peak, was valued at $9 billion.

    ^ a kind of "genius" crazy lookin bitch, i'd say... even if it was all a fraud.

    But still "genius" all the same, in making oneself go from a literal zero to a Billion dollar hero (if only perceived in the end) in the timeframe she had achieved such. Her "idea" was innovative... is only she could have actually 'produced' a real/genuine outcome.

    A man wouldn't be so dumb as to promise the world and deliver a 2 port USB hub.
