Hunter Biden found guilty on illegal weapons charges

A jury in the state of Delaware has found Hunter Biden, son of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, guilty of the three charges against him for having a weapon in his possession at a time when he was using drugs, which can cost a prison sentence.

Judge Maryellen Noreika must now hand down the sentence, but for now she has not set when she will do so, according to NBC News. Two of the three crimes with which he was charged carry a maximum penalty of ten years in prison, while the third of them is punishable by up to five years.

Experts do not predict that he will be sentenced to 25 years in prison, since he has no criminal record, although the simple verdict is already an unprecedented milestone in the history of the United States, since he had never been convicted of crimes before. a direct relative of a sitting president.

Hunter Biden, present in the courtroom during the reading of the verdict, was charged with three counts of having been in possession of a weapon, specifically a Colt Cobra revolver, for at least 11 days after having falsified the form for its purchase in 2018 and of having lied to the seller.
