Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, has been found guilty on all three felony charges in an ongoing firearms trial. The jury's decision came after they determined that he had lied about his drug use in order to illegally purchase a gun. Despite facing up to 25 years in prison, it is unlikely that he will serve jail time due to his status as a first-time offender. After the verdict was announced, President Biden expressed his acceptance of the outcome, emphasizing his respect for the judicial process as both a leader and a father. He acknowledged his love and pride for his son, while also stating that he will respect any decision Hunter makes regarding an appeal. In response, Hunter Biden expressed his gratitude for the support he has received from his family and friends, though he admitted to being disappointed by the federal gun case conviction. The verdict was reached following a two-day deliberation period in Wilmington, Delaware.

In a recent legal matter, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, faced charges related to his role as a federally licensed gun dealer. Specifically, he provided inaccurate information on an application regarding his history of drug use, and unlawfully possessed a firearm for an 11-day period. The presiding US court judge has not yet announced a sentencing date for Hunter Biden, but such proceedings typically occur within 120 days. This means the sentence could be handed down about a month before the November 5th presidential election. Interestingly, this verdict comes less than two weeks after the conviction of former President Donald Trump on business fraud charges. Trump is expected to be the Republican nominee and challenge President Biden in the upcoming election. Thus, both major political figures have now been found guilty by American juries in a year that has seen courtroom battles take center stage alongside traditional campaign activities.
