    ABC Shanae Ankney and Clayton Echard. Clayton Echard’s season of ”The Bachelor” is only a few episodes in, but fans are already frustrated. By the time the third episode of the ABC dating show aired, contestant Cassidy Timbrooks had “The Bachelor” star fooled regarding a “friends with benefits” situation she had going on back home, and Shanae Ankney was already feuding with fellow contestant Elizabeth Corrigan. Cassidy got caught after contestants filled Clayton in — ABC’s leading man even took her safety rose back and sent her packing — but Shanae flew under the radar. In one scene, Shanae claimed that Elizabeth ignored her when she tried to talk to her. “Elizabeth clearly saw me walk up … Hate her,” she quipped, before using her alone time with Clayton to alert him to her opponent’s red flags and even accuse her of bullying her. After complaining to Clayton that she still had Elizabeth on her “back,”  Shanae claimed the other women in the house won’t even talk to her if Elizabeth is in the room. She then broke...

    Queen Elizabeth II is turning to her heir amid Prince Andrew’s ongoing sexual assault case. Royal expert Kristin Contino recently made this claim, saying the reigning monarch has been relying on Prince William for advice. Contino also says the Duke of Cambridge was involved in the decision to strip his uncle of his military affiliations and royal patronages. "William, in fact, was very involved in this decision, and it’s been said that he met with the queen in person ahead of their announcement that came out last week," Contino reported to Us Weekly. "I think that really shows – and I think that’s interesting – his growing influence and how she trusts his judgment and is looking for his advice. "And I think that’s a great sign of things to come for William and how much she is relying on talking to him and his counsel," Contino added.

    A late-June sentencing date was set Friday for British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell after her conviction last month on charges including sex trafficking and conspiracy relating to the recruitment of teenage girls for financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse. U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan announced the June 28 date even as she waits to resolve defense claims that a new trial should be ordered after a juror’s public admissions after the verdict about his childhood sexual abuse. Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of late British publisher Robert Maxwell, reads a statement expressing her family's gratitude to Spanish authorities after recovery of his body, in Nov. 7, 1991, in Tenerife, Spain. (AP Photo/Dominique Mollard, File) The juror, who has never been fully publicly identified, told media outlets last week that he told other jurors during a week of deliberations that he was sexually abused as a child and used what he learned about the subject to persuade others to convict Maxwell.

    During Elizabeth Holmes’ trial, prosecutors portrayed the Silicon Valley wunderkind as the mastermind of a multimillion-dollar fraud scheme, but the stylish diaper-bag backpack she toted to court was a reminder that she’s also the new mother to a 6-month-old son. Holmes’ maternal role will weigh heavily on her and her baby when it comes time for sentencing on four counts of fraud later this year. Some legal experts say the Theranos founder, 37, could face more than a decade in federal prison, meaning that she and her son, born July 10, will face an agonizing separation experienced by an estimated 1.6 million women who are locked up over the course a year in county jails and state and federal prisons, according to the Prison Policy Initiative. Some 57,000 women in state and federal prisons have minor children, according to a 2016 U.S. Justice Department survey. Women who’ve been incarcerated describe a harrowing reality for any mother who must leave a child behind, even a mother who’s rich, White and famous, as Holmes is. They talk about the limited opportunities for visits...
    SAN JOSE (BCN) – The sentencing of Elizabeth Holmes on four counts of criminal wire fraud will be delayed until Sept. 26 based on a stipulation between the prosecution and the defense and an order signed by U.S. District Judge Edward Davila on Wednesday. Holmes, founder and former CEO of Theranos, was convicted by a jury earlier this month of three counts of defrauding investors about the company’s blood-testing technology and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud against investors.

The prosecution and defense in that case have asked for jury selection to start on March 9, 2022. The stipulation filed in the Holmes case cited “ongoing proceedings in...

    San Jose, California (CNN Business)Inside the San Jose federal courtroom, I shifted my body forward and from side to side trying to watch Elizabeth Holmes' face from the wooden bench I'd all but taken up residence in for the past four months. Like others in the courtroom Monday, I wanted to catch a glimpse of any reaction Holmes might have as she learned that jurors had found her guilty on four of 11 federal fraud and conspiracy charges. Whats next for Elizabeth Holmes?As was the case throughout the entire trial, gauging Holmes' reaction from inside the courtroom was a challenge. No cameras or audio recordings were allowed and only 34 members of the press and public were permitted inside. Those of us who made it into the room were situated behind the former Theranos CEO as she faced forward with her eyes on Judge Edward Davila. And Holmes, like everyone else in the courtroom, wore a mask. With the exception of her time on the witness stand, Holmes had appeared devoid of any discernible emotional reaction throughout the trial, even...
    NEWARK, N.J.  — A California man pleaded guilty Wednesday to running a $50 million fraud scheme using fake websites that advertised high returns on certificates of deposit. Allen Giltman, 56, pleaded guilty by videoconference to wire fraud conspiracy and securities conspiracy. His sentencing is scheduled for May 10. The multistate scheme was prosecuted by the U.S. attorney’s office in New Jersey because some of the more than 70 victims are from the state. Nina Marino, a Los Angeles-based attorney representing Giltman, declined comment. Investigators say that over the span of eight years, Giltman, of Irvine, California, and others used fake websites offering high returns on certificates of deposit to lure investors. Some of the websites were set up to resemble legitimate financial institutions. To hide their involvement, the co-conspirators purchased the website domains with prepaid gift cards and used virtual private networks, or VPNs, to disguise their digital footprint, according to prosecutors. Investigators identified at least 150 of the websites and more than 70 victims in New Jersey and elsewhere. Money wired by victims was routed to accounts in Russia,...

    Former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes faces up to 20 years in jail after being found guilty of four counts of wires fraud and conspiracy, but not long ago, she was trusted by political and media elites, including current President Joe Biden.  Biden, then serving as vice president under President Barack Obama, visited Theranos' headquarters in California in 2015 for a public event and called it 'the laboratory of the future.'     'Talk about being inspired,' Biden said during a roundtable with Holmes. 'This is inspiration. It is amazing to me, Elizabeth, what you've been able to do.' Just a few months later, reports uncovered that Holmes had lied to investors and patients about Theranos' infamous blood testing technology, which she claimed could test for a variety of diseases.  Biden was far from alone in sinking hopes into Theranos. Biden declared Barack Obama to be a backer of Holmes' work as well.  Elizabeth Holmes, founder and CEO of Theranos, and Vice President Joe Biden, from left, arrive for a panel discussion during a visit to Theranos in July of 2015 Theranos...
    Theranos, the troubled Silicon Valley startup headed by now convicted fraudster Elizabeth Holmes, burned through the $$945 million it raised through wealthy investors, all while she lived in a $5,395 a month San Francisco suite with a jaw dropping view of the Golden Gate Bridge.  Holmes, 37, was found guilty of four counts of wire fraud by a California jury on Monday after deceiving investors into sinking more than $945 million into her faulty blood testing machines.  Theranos raised nearly all of its capital from investing titans including media mogul Rupert Murdoch who lost $125 million, former Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos who gave $100 million, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger who invested $3 million and Walmart family heiress Alice Walton who lost $100 million.  The five month trial that exposed Holmes's dubious claims about financial success ultimately revealed the company was a money sinkhole that lost nearly $2 million a week in 2013 and reported only $429,000 in revenue before going under in 2015.   Elizabeth Holmes (center) was found guilty on four counts of wire fraud by a...

Take Elizabeth Holmes' health-care start-up, for example. On Monday, the founder and former CEO of Theranos was found guilty of four charges in her criminal fraud trial. Nearly a decade ago, Holmes raised $945 million from high-profile investors including media mogul Rupert Murdoch, former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Walton family of Walmart fame. To lure investors, witnesses testified that Holmes' claims about the company's blood-testing technology were either exaggerated or false. In the end, jurors convicted Holmes of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She faces up to 20 years in prison.

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes made her way out of the courtroom Monday after a jury found her guilty on four counts of fraud and conspiracy involving defrauding investors."Do you have anything to say?" asked one reporter as Holmes left.Holmes didn't look that way or respond to the question.RELATED: Jury finds Elizabeth Holmes guilty of fraud, conspiracy at her former blood-testing startup TheranosThe jury had deliberated for more than 45 hours over the course of seven days -- Holmes once claiming that her company had invented technology that could accurately and reliably test for a range of health conditions with a few drops of blood.While Holmes was found guilty on the four counts, she was found not guilty on another four counts that involved defrauding and conspiracy against patients.

    Then-Vice President Joe Biden played a key role in helping further the billion-dollar con job perpetrated by Elizabeth Holmes, lavishing the disgraced Theranos founder with praise in 2015. Holmes, whose company falsely claimed to be able to conduct wide-ranging and revolutionary life-saving tests using only tiny drops of blood, was found guilty on Monday on one federal charge of conspiracy to defraud investors and three counts of wire fraud. Holmes, now 37, and her longtime business partner Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani were indicted in June 2018 for two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud. The jury for Holmes did not reach a verdict on three of the wire fraud charges and found her not guilty of a conspiracy to defraud patients and not guilty on three of the other wire fraud charges. Another count against Holmes was dropped. Balwani's trial is scheduled to begin later this month. Theranos touted Biden’s July 23, 2015 visit to its headquarters in a lengthy press release, calling it “A New Era of Preventive Health...
    Elizabeth Holmes, founder and former CEO of Theranos, was indicted on fraud charges. (Jeff Chiu/Associated Press) A California jury on Monday found Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes guilty of covering up lies about her company's blood-testing technology to dupe investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars. Holmes, 37, was charged with nine counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in 2018 after her Silicon Valley start-up buckled under the weight of falsified claims it could scan for hundreds of diseases and other health problems using just a few drops of blood from a tiny finger prick. If the technology was sound, as she said it was, it would have dramatically improved the conventional method of drawing vials of blood from needles, shipping them off to a lab, and waiting for results, which would often take up to days. The Theranos pitch was so compelling that Holmes and her business partner Ramesh Balwani were able to quickly secure $945 million in funding and ink lucrative deals with Pfizer, Walgreens, and Safeway.

    The jury in the trial of former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes remains deadlocked on 3 out of eleven counts as deliberations stretch into the seventh day. The jury returned a note to Judge Edward Davila on Monday informing him that they could not reach a unanimous verdict, according to multiple reports. Davila read the jury the conventional instructions for deadlocked juries, and instructed them to continue deliberating. It’s unclear on exactly which counts the jury is unable to deliver a verdict, The New York Times reported. Holmes was charged with nine counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit fraud for allegedly misleading investors about the effectiveness of her biotechnology company Theranos’ blood-testing equipment.

Davila was informed of a second jury note at around 2:40 p.m. PT on Monday, about three hours after he gave jurors a so-called Allen charge, an instruction that they try harder to come to a unanimous agreement. With the jurors still not reaching a consensus on those three counts, Davila sent them back to produce a verdict on the eight other counts, if they're ready. Deliberations have spanned more than 50 hours over seven days. The jury was handed the case on Dec. 17, following a three-month trial that featured 32 witnesses, mostly called by the prosecution.

    The jury weighing fraud charges against former entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes is unable to reach a unanimous verdict on three of the 11 criminal counts she faces, according to a note from the panel read aloud in court. After conferring with lawyers for the defense and prosecution, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila sent for the jury in order to encourage it to deliberate further. Once the jury returned to court, Davila instructed its members to do their best to reach a verdict, noting that they should re-examine their own views and change their opinions if persuaded they are wrong. He also reminded them that charges must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Jurors then returned to their deliberations, which they began on Monday after an extended holiday break.

    By Joel Rosenblatt | Bloomberg The jury weighing Elizabeth Holmes’s criminal fraud case finished its sixth full day of deliberations without a verdict, deciding to reconvene next week, on Jan. 3. It’s hardly unusual for jurors to take their time deciding white-collar criminal cases. Even so, the jury in federal court in San Jose, California, has been especially quiet. The group of eight men and four women heard closing arguments almost two weeks ago. Since that time they’ve made only one meaningful request to review evidence presented at trial. After hearing three months of testimony, the jury deliberated for three days before deciding on Dec. 23 to stop until after the Christmas holiday. Jurors met for three more days this week.

They allege that she knowingly defrauded investors and deceived doctors and patients when her blood-testing technology was unreliable and inaccurate.

    SAN JOSE (BCN/CBS SF) — The jury in the Elizabeth Holmes criminal fraud trial spent its fourth day deliberating on Monday without reaching a verdict. Holmes, founder and CEO of the now-infamous company Theranos, is waiting to hear what the decision will be on the 11 counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud charged by a federal grand jury in June of 2018. She faces up to 20 years in prison on each count, although federal sentencing guidelines would generally prevent the imposition of consecutive terms, and up to $2.75 million in criminal fines.

    Queen Elizabeth shared the pain she felt after the death of her husband, Prince Philip, as she encouraged people everywhere to celebrate Christmas with friends and family, despite the grief caused by the ongoing pandemic. Saying she understood the difficulty of spending the holiday season "with one familiar laugh missing," the monarch delivered her address beside a framed photograph of her arm-in-arm with Prince Philip, who died in April at age 99. On her right shoulder was the same sapphire chrysanthemum brooch she wore in the photo — a glittering statement pin that she also wore as a newlywed. "Although it’s a time of great happiness and good cheer for many, Christmas can be hard for those who have lost loved ones,’’ the queen said in the prerecorded message broadcast when many British families were enjoying their traditional Christmas dinner. "This year, especially, I understand why.’’ WHO'S ATTENDING CHRISTMAS WITH QUEEN ELIZABETH?

    Elizabeth Holmes, founder of Theranos Inc., exits federal court in San Jose, California, U.S., on Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2021.David Paul Morris | Bloomberg | Getty Images SAN JOSE, Calif. — The 12 jurors presiding over Elizabeth Holmes' criminal trial left the San Jose courthouse early on Thursday afternoon, and won't return until Monday morning. The jury has now been deliberating for about 22 hours over the course of three full days, but has yet to come to an agreement on a verdict. They snuck out a back entrance without explanation on Thursday, rather than taking the elevators, which are visible to reporters and others in the courtroom. Judge Edward Davila handed the jury the case last Friday afternoon, following a three-month trial that featured 32 witnesses, mostly called by the prosecution. Jurors asked Davila on Tuesday if they could take instructions home with them, but he denied their request, telling the courtroom that "all deliberations must take place only in the jury deliberation room." Earlier on Thursday, the jury asked to listen to audio that they'd previously heard during the...

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The jurors responsible for assessing 11 charges of fraud and conspiracy against former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes are scheduled to begin their third day of deliberations on Thursday. If they haven’t reached a verdict by the end of the day, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila and the attorneys for both sides will discuss the possibility of taking a break until Jan. 3. The jury had originally signaled that it was willing to deliberate during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. On Tuesday after roughly 13 hours of deliberation, the jurors asked U.S. District Judge Edward Davila whether they could take home the 39-page document spelling out their legal instructions to study it more carefully. The request, submitted just ahead of a previously scheduled one-day break in their deliberations, was swiftly rejected on the grounds that all jury deliberations are supposed to happen inside an isolated room in the San Jose, California, courthouse where the trial was held. The jury is charged with deciding whether Holmes turned her blood-testing startup into a massive...
    “She struck first. Yes, she did actually call me a freeloader and a grifter who doesn’t pay taxes. I’m literally paying the most tax that any individual in history has ever paid this year, ever, and she doesn’t pay taxes, basically. And her taxes and salary is paid for by the taxpayer, like me. If you could die by irony, she would be dead,” Musk said. During another portion of the 90-minute interview, Musk took a dig at CNN after one of its producers was accused earlier this month of committing lurid sexual crimes against children. One of the hosts joked that Musk "could have been on CNN right now," a "real news organization" when compared to the Babylon Bee — a comment to which Musk replied, "I'm not perverted enough, I guess."
