Hunter Biden has been convicted on all three counts in his federal gun trial, marking the first instance of a sitting US president's son receiving a criminal conviction. According to prosecutors, Biden, aged 54, allegedly falsified information about his drug use on a federal form when purchasing a handgun in 2018. Biden maintained his innocence, arguing that he was undergoing treatment for drug addiction at the time and thus did not provide false information on the gun application.
After approximately three hours of deliberation, a jury of 12 in Delaware reached their decision. Biden displayed minimal emotion upon hearing the verdict, maintaining a stoic demeanor before embracing some of his legal team associates. The charges against Biden included two counts related to false statements about his drug use on a federal background check, and one count of possessing a firearm while addicted to or using drugs.
