President Biden’s Son Hunter Loses Bid To Dismiss Gun Charges

Hunter Biden Gun Charges

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika in Delaware declined to dismiss gun charges against Hunter Biden, paving the way for a trial on June 3.

He faces accusations of lying about narcotics use and illegally possessing a handgun.

Special Counsel David Weiss brought the charges in September, marking Hunter Biden as the first child of a sitting president to face indictment. If convicted, he could face over 20 years in prison.

Hunter Biden’s legal team argued for dismissal, citing potential unconstitutionality of the law and issues with Weiss’s appointment. They also claimed selective prosecution and a binding agreement shielding him from prosecution.

In addition to the gun charges, Hunter Biden faces federal tax crimes in California. The trial is set for June 20, with accusations of failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes while spending on various luxuries.

U.S. District Judge Mark Scarsi in Los Angeles rejected motions to dismiss the tax indictment on April 1. Hunter Biden has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
