Christian's sister, Elizabeth, the founder of Theranos, was recently sentenced to at least 11 years in prison after she was convicted of defrauding investors. Judge Edward Davila enforced a sentence of 11 years and three months in jail.

Davila added another three years of supervision after Elizabeth is set free. The verdict included a fine of $400, or $100 per every count of fraud. Elizabeth, expected to appeal her conviction, was instructed to turn herself in custody on April 27, 2023.
