BREAKING NEWS: Hunter Biden Found Guilty on All Charges in Historic Gun Case




Taniesa L. Sullivan | The Weekly Ledger News | BREAKING NEWS (USA Today)

WILMINGTON, Del. − A federal jury has found Hunter Biden guilty of all federal gun charges, a historic first for the offspring of a sitting president, after a trial featuring wrenching emotional testimony about his drug use from his ex-wife and sister-in-law.

President Joe Biden's son faces up to 25 years in prison for three charges − lying on a federal screening form about his drug use, lying to a gun dealer, and possessing the gun − although first-time, nonviolent offenders typically get shorter sentences. U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika will soon set Hunter Biden's sentencing date.



The 54-year-old businessman and attorney's case came after a plea deal fell apart in July 2023 that could have resolved gun and tax charges without prison time. Hunter Biden still faces another federal trial starting Sept. 5 in California for allegedly avoiding taxes.

Biden's legal troubles coincide with his father campaigning for reelection. However, as the trial kicked off, the elder Biden issued a statement supporting his son and later told ABC News he wouldn't pardon him.
