Joe Biden’s Son: Guilty in gun case

After a lengthy and contentious trial, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden was convicted on all charges in the gun case.

A jury convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal charges he faced in a gun case.

The jury found that Joe Biden’s son violated laws intended to prevent drug addicts from possessing firearms.

The conviction marks the first time a member of a president’s immediate family has been convicted of a crime during his father’s tenure.

Although his crimes predate Joe Biden’s term as president.


The jury, which deliberated for just under three hours, returned guilty verdicts on all three counts against Joe Biden’s son stemming from a revolver Hunter Biden purchased in October 2018 from a Delaware gun shop.

The first two charges were for lying about his drug use on a federal background check form, and the third charge was for possessing a gun while addicted to or using illegal drugs.

Joe Biden’s Son Could Face Conviction

Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $750,000 at sentencing.

But Joe Biden’s son is likely to receive a sentence far less than the maximum possible as a primary convict.

The outcome brings to an end a painful chapter for the Biden family, including many members who were directly involved in the courtroom drama.

Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, sat in the defendant’s seat; many family members, including first lady Jill Biden, were often in the courtroom showing their support, and some family members were called to testify. The first lady arrived at the courthouse shortly after the verdict was read.

Hunter Biden’s conviction follows a lengthy Justice Department investigation that began in 2018, and raises the stakes for his second scheduled trial, scheduled to begin in September, for federal tax crimes.
