Hunter Biden, US president’s son, convicted in gun case

Washington, June 11 A US jury on Tuesday found Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, guilty of three crimes charged against him related to gun possession.

Biden faces a maximum sentence of 25 years, but he is more likely to get off with much less sentence as a first-time offender.

President Biden may grant him clemency, but he has repeatedly said he would not do so if his son is found guilty.

This is the first time that the child of an American president has been tried and criminally convicted.

Hunter Biden was charged with two counts of providing false information on a form he filled out when purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in 2018. He falsely stated at the time that he did not consume no narcotics, which he declared at the time in an autobiography. The third charge accuses him of using drugs while in possession of a firearm.

He had pleaded not guilty.

The Junior Biden also faces a second trial in September on tax fraud charges.
