In court last monthMs. Holmes appeared to be pregnant with a second child. She has been out on bail, living in Woodside, Calif., with her partner and young son. She is expected to file an appeal after the sentencing.
A lawyer for Ms. Holmes did not respond to a request for comment.
Ms. Holmes had requested a new trial based on new evidence including an unusual visit to her home in August by Dr. Adam Rosendorff, a key witness for the prosecution.
After Ms. Holmes claimed that Dr. Rosendorff had made statements that called his testimony into question, Judge Davila ordered him to appear in court to affirm his testimony.
On the stand last month, Dr. Rosendorff, who was Theranos’s lab director and helped expose the company’s fraud, explained that he had visited Ms. Holmes to help find closure and put the saga behind him.
Mr. Holmes’s lawyers questioned Dr. Rosendorff’s mental health and state of mind while testifying in the trial. They used a comment he made at Ms. Holmes’s house to accuse the government of painting a skewed picture of what happened at Theranos.
