Following a jury's conviction of Holmes on three charges of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to defraud investors, judgment day has come..

The hearing marks what is probably the end of the story around Theranos, which has lasted for years..

It was listed as one of the most serious white-collar offenses Silicon Valley, or any other district, had ever encountered by the prosecutors..

Holmes' defense attorneys are requesting that he serve his sentence at home rather than in jail.

Her partner, a tech investor, and a legislator all write letters pleading for mercy.

130 letters from Holmes' friends, family, and other supporters—including New Jersey Sen.—were given to the judge by his legal team.
