Hunter Biden Faces Federal Firearm Possession Charges Before End of September


The U.S. justice system is set to press charges against Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, for a federal offense of "firearm possession" before the end of this month, following the collapse of the plea deal he had reached with the prosecution, according to the special prosecutor in the case.

Special prosecutor David Weiss, who has been investigating cases involving the President's son for the past five years, stated that a grand jury will issue its indictment decision in Hunter's firearm possession case, which carries a potential sentence of 10 years in prison upon conviction, as detailed in court records published by the American news outlet Axios.

This move comes weeks after the plea deal negotiations fell apart due to two tax-related charges and a firearm possession charge against President Biden's son.

"The Speedy Trial Act requires the government to obtain an indictment from a grand jury by Friday, September 29, 2023, at the latest. The government intends to seek an indictment in this case before that date," stated Weiss. The charges to be brought against Hunter Biden have not been disclosed.

Last month, Attorney General Merrick Garland elevated the special prosecutor for the case to a special counsel to lead the investigation into Hunter Biden.

Since the collapse of the plea deal negotiations, the defense and prosecutors have been at odds in court filings. In June, Hunter Biden agreed to plead guilty to not paying taxes in 2017 and 2018.

In July, the plea deal faced a setback in court when Judge Marilena Norica stated she was not prepared to accept the modified terms of the agreement.
