Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty on all charges Tuesday in his federal gun trial in Delaware.

Jurors convicted Hunter Biden, 54, on three felony counts of lying on paperwork for a revolver and owning the firearm while being a drug addict in 2018.

The verdict, reached on the second day of jury deliberations, could land Hunter Biden in prison for up to 25 years and lead to fines as high as $750,000.

Hunter Biden was seen walking out of the courthouse while holding hands with first lady Jill Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen Biden after the decision.

Sentencing is expected in about four months, according to “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell, who noted it could happen around election time.

Hunter Biden, who had pleaded not guilty to the charges, may appeal the decision. His father, President Biden, has already vowed not to pardon his son.

The trial lasted a little more than a week. Witnesses included Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, a former girlfriend, and the gun store clerk who sold him the revolver.

His late brother Beau Biden’s wife, Hallie Biden, testified about her public disposal of the revolver and being introduced to crack cocaine by Hunter Biden.

Defense lawyers argued there was no evidence of Hunter Biden abusing drugs at the time he applied for the revolver and owned the gun.

Texts presented by prosecutors showed Hunter Biden telling Hallie Biden he was “smoking crack” and “waiting on a dealer” shortly after he bought the gun.

The defense called Naomi Biden, Hunter Biden’s daughter, to testify during the trial but the defendant himself never took the stand.

Hunter Biden has also pleaded not guilty to tax charges in California. A trial in that case is set to take place in September.

The indictments in both cases, which took shape after the collapse of a plea deal last year, are spearheaded by special counsel David Weiss.


President Biden, who is running for a second term, released a statement after the verdict repeating his pledge to accept the outcome.

“Jill and I will always be there for Hunter and the rest of our family with our love and support,” he added. “Nothing will ever change that.”
