‘The Dropout’ is a drama series about the life of Elizabeth Holmes
‘The Dropout’ is a drama series about the life of Elizabeth Holmes, a real-life Silicon Valley visionary who became a criminal. Holmes allegedly cheated hundreds of people and conned tech power players. The show details how Holmes and her company, Theranos, fell from grace.
The show’s title refers to the fact that Holmes supposedly started a company called Theranos while still in high school. She said she would revolutionize health care. But she never actually built a working machine. Her technology didn’t work and her company was a failure.
While the story is fictionalized, “The Dropout” retells the events of the real-life case through a combination of exaggerated and real-life events. The story was documented by podcast The Dropout, which was later turned into a television miniseries.
He appeared pregnant
Speculation was rampant after the news of Holmes’ pregnancy made headlines. It is speculated that her second pregnancy is a ploy to avoid serious prison time. She may also take a shot at a mental disease defense in her criminal fraud trial. She could even seek home confinement.
A number of reporters and commentators have reported that Holmes is pregnant. Some have said it is a surefire way to get out of jail, while others say it is an eerie coincidence. In an interview with AP, Holmes did not provide any specifics about the pregnancy. However, she did smile at a reporter’s compliments on her shoes as she walked through the courthouse.
He was a member of the Alabama Men’s Track and Field team
Despite his storied tenure as a member of the Alabama Football program, Holmes has found the time to maintain a prestigious 3.26 GPA. His list of achievements includes a few SEC award winners, one of which is the undisputed king of the SEC’s haughty faculty. He was also a part of the program’s track and field team, which won the coveted SEC Indoor Track and Field Championship in February. Among other things, the tigers namesake earned first place in the power clean (for the record, he’s not a pugilist).
In addition to the honors mentioned above, Holmes has earned accolades in the classroom. For instance, he has made the Dean’s List for the past three years. He has also been an active part of the program’s community service efforts. For example, he was the recipient of an honorary SEC membership during his junior year and was named to the SEC’s Community Service Team in 2014.
He was a key player in the Browns’ loss to the Cincinnati Bengals
During the 2003 season, Holmes broke the NFL record for touchdowns with 27. He earned All-American honorable mention by the Associated Press as a junior. He finished his college career at Oklahoma State. He was an honorable mention All-American as a senior and also earned all-district honors. As a junior, he had 40 receptions for 664 yards. He was a first-team all-district selection.
He led Robert E. Lee High School to the UIL 5A state championship game. As a junior, he had three interceptions and returned four kickoffs for 25 yards. He was named the All-Missouri District’s top player.
He joined the Browns practice squad in December. After a few weeks, he was released. He was re-signed on March 7, 2017 and signed to a future contract.
He was convicted of absconding with bitcoins
Considering Christian Holmes’s tumultuous tenure as Ole Miss’s QB, it’s no surprise that he made a splash on the field and off it. With an eye on the prize, a solid swagbag, and the ability to play ball on the fly, Holmes pounced on the opportunity like a cheetah on the prowl. The best part was Holmes got to spend a few days with his new yeehawts in tow. Not to be trifled with, the alpha males resorted to some adolescent shenanigans of their own. Amongst this motley crew, Holmes was dubbed the sexiest of the bunch. During his time at the helm, Holmes racked up over a couple of dozen picks and took a few punches at the line. The following week, Holmes went on the road less traveled to the good old southern state of Texas.
He faces up to 20 years in prison
Unless a new trial is granted, Elizabeth Holmes could face up to 20 years in prison for her role in a scheme to defraud investors. She also could be fined $250,000. A federal judge will decide whether Holmes will be eligible for a new trial.
A key prosecution witness visited Elizabeth Holmes’ home without her invitation in August. The visit left Adam Rosendorff a bit unnerved. He said he felt like he had done something wrong. He thought it might be a healing process to meet Holmes, but that Holmes’ lawyer told him to leave.
While Rosendorff did not say he intended to help Holmes before going to jail, prosecutors pressed him to admit his role in the case. He claimed he was “distressed” by the idea of Holmes’ child growing up without a mother. He said he did not want to retract his testimony, but that he wanted to fully cooperate with the government in the interest of justice.
