US: President Biden’s son, Hunter convicted for charges in gun trial

Hunter Biden faces up to 25 years in prison and a fine of up
to $750,000 at sentencing, though as a first-time offender, he is likely to
receive a lesser sentence. Sentencing is expected to occur within 120 days.

 

Prosecutors, led by special counsel David Weiss, argued
successfully that Hunter Biden’s actions violated laws meant to prevent drug
addicts from owning firearms.

 

Despite the defence team’s efforts to argue that Hunter did
not view himself as a user or addict at the time of the purchase, the jury
returned a unanimous guilty verdict on all charges.

 

The conviction concludes a chapter of the ongoing Justice
Department investigation into Hunter Biden, which began in 2018. He is set to
face another trial in September for federal tax offences.

 

Both cases have been managed by David Weiss, previously
appointed by President Trump, whose team has denied any political motivations
behind the prosecution.

 

Despite the legal turmoil, President Biden and the White
House have consistently ruled out a pardon for Hunter Biden.
