    Barron's Theranos' Ex-COO Found Guilty on All Counts

    A federal jury in California has convicted Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes’ former top lieutenant, on all 12 charges that he helped perpetuate a fraud at the blood-testing company.

    Balwani, who was Theranos’ former president and chief operating officer, was found guilty of 10 counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

    His conviction six months after Holmes was found guilty of fraud ends the U.S. government’s pursuit of one of the most notorious and widely followed white-collar criminal trials in recent history.

    Holmes and Balwani mislead investors and consumers about Theranos’ ability to perform numerous standard blood tests with just a finger prick instead of the usual method of withdrawing blood into a test-tube. At one point Theranos was valued at more
    than $9 billion.

    Holmes was found guilty on Jan. 3 of four of the 11 counts of wire fraud and conspiracy, and not guilty on four counts. The jury could not reach a verdict on the remaining three. Unlike Holmes, Balwani didn’t testify in his own defense.

    Balwani’s attorney Stephen Cazares said of his client when the trial opened that “he didn’t start Theranos, he didn’t control Theranos,” and that “Sunny believed in Theranos, he believed in its technology and he believed in its mission.”

    Holmes in her testimony denied any intent to defraud Theranos customers and investors, saying reports from subordinates led her to believe that parts of Theranos technology worked. She also said she suffered emotional and sexual abuse by Balwani during a
    romantic relationship—allegations Balwani has denied.

    Balwani’s trial didn’t attract the same level of media coverage and public curiosity as Holmes’ trial, but as one half of the power couple, Balwani was accused of the same crimes. “I considered Mr. Balwani and Elizabeth to be unified in all of
    their decision-making processes,” Mark Pandori, Theranos’s lab director from 2013 to 2014, testified in March.

    Balwani was in charge of Theranos’ lab, where the blood testing occurred, and challenged and sometimes fired employees who questioned the performance of Theranos technology, prosecutors and witnesses said.

    He was also responsible for the financial models given to investors, which overstated Theranos’s revenue by as much as nine times the company’s internal projections, prosecutors said, and managed the company’s partnership with Walgreens Boots
    Alliance, the Journal reported.

    Prosecutors showed a text message Balwani sent Holmes, saying: “I am responsible for everything at Theranos. All have been my decisions too.”

    Holmes is scheduled to be sentenced in September, and Balwani’s sentencing was set for November. She and Balwani each face up to 20 years in prison for each of their guilty counts.

    How stupid is Troll Doe?

    Troll Doe posting one of its vacuous insults at 05:39:20 UTC on 20 Mar
    2022 with a grammatical error:

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164790428800

    Then, at 05:55:56 UTC, 16 minutes and 36 seconds later, Troll Doe
    responds to its own post with a correction, but stupidly forgets that it
    sets a Followup-To: header to the "alt.test.group", resulting in its
    correction article posting only to "alt.test.group":

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164790440700

    Troll Doe, mister "always.look@message.header", is so stupid it does not
    even remember it sets a Followup-To: header in its own vacuous insults.

    Special thanks to corvid <bl@ckb.ird> for pointing out the stupidity of
    Troll Doe:

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=165594737000

    The Troll Doe stated the following in message-id
    <sdhn7c$pkp$4@dont-email.me>:

    The troll doesn't even know how to format a USENET post...

    And yet, the clueless Troll Doe has continued to post incorrectly
    formatted USENET articles that are devoid of content (latest example on
    Fri, 08 Jul 2022 03:25:17 GMT in message-id <xsNxK.183378$LfE9.48426@usenetxs.com>).

    NOBODY likes the John Doe troll's contentless spam.

    This posting is a public service announcement for any google groups
    readers who happen by to point out that Troll Doe does not even follow
    the rules it uses to troll other posters.
