Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes was given a sentence of more than 11 years for fraud and conspiracy convictions.

Elizabeth Holmes was given a sentence of more than 11 years in prison by a judge in California for many charges of fraud.

Prosecutors requested a 15-year jail sentence, as well as reparations

and a stringent probationary period following her release, in court on Friday.

The probation officer for Holmes asked for a nine-year sentence.

However, Holmes' defence team requested that Judge Edward Davila only jail her for 18 months

before placing her on probation and have her perform community service.

Senator Cory Booker was one of more than 100 persons who wrote letters to the judge begging for compassion in Holmes' punishment.

In the end, Holmes will serve 135 months in a federal prison, according to Judge Davila's decision.

After that, she will be under supervised release for three years.
