Ex-Theranos executive headed to prison after losing appeal


AP Technology Writer

Former Theranos executive Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani will be heading to prison later this month. That’s because an appeals court rejected his bid to remain free while he contests his conviction for carrying out a blood-testing hoax with his former boss and lover, Elizabeth Holmes. After an appeals court refused Balwani’s request, another judge on Friday ordered Balwani to start his nearly 13-year prison sentence on April 20. That’s a week before before Holmes is scheduled to start a roughly 11-year prison sentence. Holmes was Theranos’ CEO and hired Balwani as the company’s chief operating officer while they were romantically involved.
