WILMINGTON, DELAWARE — JURORS IN A FEDERAL TRIAL in Delaware on Tuesday morning, June 11, convicted Hunter Biden of all three felony charges related to the purchase of a revolver in 2018, reports the Associated Press. Hunter Biden had lied on a mandatory gun-purchase form by saying he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs, and illegally had the gun for 11 days. The weapon was later found in a trash dump. During the trial, Hunter Biden’s ex-wife and a former girlfriend testified about finding his crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia. The case was specific to this particular incident, which took place during a particularly turbulent time in Hunter Biden’s life. An exact sentencing date has not been set. He faces up to 25 years in prison when sentenced, although that date has not been set. The question also remains whether the judge will sentence him behind bars or assign him to another means of confinement.

President Joe Biden said in a statement released after the conviction that he and First Lady Jill Biden will remain steadfast  for their son “with our love and support.” The president said also that he’ll accept the outcome and continue to respect the judicial process as Hunter considers an appeal. Hunter is the Bidens’ only still-living son; his brother Beau died of brain cancer in 2015.
