Hunter Biden Found Guilty on Three Felony Counts Related to Purchasing a Gun While Addicted to Drugs

Hunter Biden has been convicted of all three felony charges related to the purchase of a revolver in 2018. Prosecutors argued that he lied on a mandatory gun-purchase form by stating he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs.

Jurors found Hunter Biden guilty of lying to a federally licensed gun dealer, making a false claim on the application, and illegally possessing the gun for 11 days. He now faces up to 25 years in prison when sentenced by Judge Maryellen Noreika. However, first-time offenders rarely receive the maximum sentence, and it is unclear whether he will serve time behind bars. Federal guidelines state that Hunter should be sentenced to around one year in prison.

Now, both Hunter Biden and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, the chief political rival of President Joe Biden, have been convicted by American jurors in an election year that has focused as much on courtroom drama as on campaign events.

President Joe Biden has avoided the federal courtroom in Delaware where his son was tried, remaining largely silent about the case to prevent any perception of meddling in a Justice Department investigation. Supporters of the president are worried about the emotional strain this trial and conviction may impose on the 81-year-old, who has consistently been concerned about his only surviving son’s well-being and recovery.
