Date:

June 11, (THEWILL) – Hunter Biden, son of US President, Joe Biden, has been found guilty on three felony counts of lying on a federal firearms application.

Hunter was charged before a Federal Court in Wilmington on the three felony counts, bordering on possession of a gun while using narcotics.

Two of the counts accused Hunter Biden of having completed a form falsely indicating he was not using illegal drugs when he bought a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018. The third count alleged he possessed a firearm while using a narcotic.

While he pleaded not guilty to the charges, the jury, on Tuesday, found him guilty.

The trial was the first involving the children of a sitting president. It also follows the historic verdict on former President, Donald Trump, who has been convicted earlier of Felonies in hush money trial.

Two of the counts carry maximum prison sentences of 10 years, while the third has a maximum of five years. Under federal sentencing guideline recommendations, he could be sentenced to over a year in prison, but the judge could sentence him to more or less time. Each count also carries a maximum fine of $250,000.

No sentencing date has been set.

Earlier in the trial that began on June 3, President Biden had said he loved his son and was proud of him.

“Hunter’s resilience in the face of adversity and the strength he has brought to his recovery are inspiring to us”, he said.

First Lady, Jill Biden, attended the trial, which featured explicit testimony from three of Hunter Biden’s former romantic partners about his chronic drug use.
