    Hunter Biden Found Guilty on Federal Gun Charges: President Biden Issues Statement

    Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has been found guilty on all three federal felony gun charges he faced, marking the first time a president’s family member has been convicted of a crime during the father’s term in office. The charges stem from Biden violating laws to prevent drug addicts from purchasing firearms.

    President Biden issued a statement expressing his love and support for his son, stating that he and First Lady Jill Biden are proud of the man Hunter has become. Despite the conviction, the President emphasized that they will continue to stand by Hunter as he considers an appeal.

    The charges against Hunter Biden relate to his falsification of information on ATF forms when purchasing a gun, as well as his possession of the firearm while abusing drugs. The indictment revealed that Biden had the gun for 11 days in 2018 before his girlfriend disposed of it due to concerns about his mental health.

    Hunter Biden has been open about his struggles with addiction, revealing that he began using crack in 2015 following the death of his brother, Beau. The guilty verdict carries a potential sentence of up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $750,000, although as a first-time offender, Biden is expected to receive a lesser punishment.

    The case has sparked national attention and raised questions about the intersection of personal struggles and legal responsibilities. The outcome of Hunter Biden’s appeal will be closely watched as the judicial process unfolds.
