Hunter Biden Pleads Not Guilty To Gun Charges

 Hunter Biden, the son of the president, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to a trio of felony gun charges at a federal courthouse in Wilmington, Delaware.

“Mr. Biden pleads not guilty,” Biden’s lawyer Abbe Lowell said, according to NBC News.

A federal grand jury indicted Biden, 53, last month on counts related to his purchase of a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver while he was a drug addict in October 2018.

Biden faces a maximum of 25 years in prison and up to $750,000 in fines if convicted.

After Biden pleaded not guilty, the judge explained the terms of his release, which reportedly included: supervision by a U.S. probation officer in the Central District of California, seeking employment, and not using drugs or alcohol.

The first son is being prosecuted after a plea deal with Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss collapsed after a judge raised concerns about immunity.


Attorney General Merrick Garland granted Weiss special counsel status in August, giving the U.S. attorney broader authority to bring charges outside of his own district.

Biden could still face other charges including tax evasion counts that were part of the plea agreement that fell apart.
