A ‘flee’ circus denial

- Thomas Barrabi

Disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes issued a denial Monday after the feds alleged in a bombshell court filing that she had planned to go on the run prior to her conviction on fraud charges.

Prosecutor­s had alleged in a court filing last week that Holmes had booked a one-way ticket to Mexico weeks before a jury reached a verdict in her fraud case.

The feds characteri­zed the move as an “attempt to flee the country” and suggested she only nixed the plan after contact from government lawyers. Holmes’ legal team described the allegation from prosecutor­s as “baseless” and asked a judge to strike the claim from the court’s records.

Holmes was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison last November after being convicted for lying to Theranos investors about the doomed medical tech startup’s blood-testing technology.
