Live: Hunter Biden found guilty on all three felony gun charges

WILMINGTON, Del. (NewsNation) —  President Joe Biden’s son Hunter has been found guilty of all three felony gun charges against him. He now faces up to 25 years in prison.

This trial was the first of two Hunter Biden faces amid his father’s reelection campaign. The president has previously said he plans to accept the jury’s verdict and has ruled out a pardon for his son.

Judge Maryellen Noreika said sentencing is usually done within 120 days out, and that she would be in touch to schedule a hearing. First-time offenders do not get anywhere near the maximum sentence, according to the Associated Press.


Hunter Biden’s gun trial: timeline

The trial put a spotlight on a turbulent time in Hunter Biden’s life after his older brother Beau Biden’s death in 2015.

Prosecutors said Hunter Biden lied when he swore he wasn’t a drug user on a form he filled out at the gun shop in 2018, months before Joe Biden announced his bid for president. However, defense attorneys said that Hunter Biden did not consider himself an “addict” when he filled out that form, as he had completed a rehab program weeks earlier.

Who testified at Hunter Biden’s trial?

Witnesses included Hunter Biden’s former romantic partners, including Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie. The two had a brief relationship after Beau Biden died of brain cancer.

Hallie Biden found the unloaded gun in Hunter Biden’s truck Oct. 23, 2018, panicked and tossed it into a garbage can at a grocery store in Wilmington, where a man inadvertently fished it out of the trash.

During the trial, Hunter Biden’s daughter, Naomi, also testified, as well as the person who sold him the gun.

Reaction to Verdict

Hunter Biden kept a straight face as the verdict was read. He was found guilty on two counts of lying on a gun permit application by saying he was not a drug user, as well as one count of possessing a gun as a drug addict.

James Biden, Hunter’s uncle and the president’s brother, gasped and took a breath when he heard the verdict.

Before leaving the courtroom, Hunter Biden hugged his lawyer, Abbe Lowell and other members of his legal team and kissed his wife,Melissa Cohen Biden.

Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement that the verdict is a “step toward accountability.”

“But until the Department of Justice investigates everyone involved in the Bidens’ corrupt influence peddling schemes that generated over $18 million in foreign payments to the Biden family, it will be clear department officials continue to cover for the Big Guy, Joe Biden,” Comer said. 

Hunter Biden is also facing a separate trial, set to be held this September in California, over charges that he failed to pay $1.4 million in taxes. Both cases were to have been resolved through a now-defunct plea deal with prosecutors last July, the culmination of a yearslong investigation into his business dealings.
