Hunter Biden, the son of Pres­i­dent Joe Biden, was con­vict­ed by a fed­er­al jury of lying about his drug use when pur­chas­ing a firearm. 

He was found guilty of mak­ing a false state­ment in the pur­chase of a firearm, mak­ing a false state­ment relat­ed to infor­ma­tion required to be kept by a fed­er­al­ly licensed firearms deal­er, and pos­ses­sion of a firearm by an unlaw­ful user of or addict to a con­trolled substance.

The ver­dict came after a tri­al in which pros­e­cu­tors used wit­ness tes­ti­mo­ny, Hunter’s own com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and excerpts from his mem­oir to prove that he was using crack cocaine around the time he bought a .38-cal­iber revolver in Octo­ber 2018. 

The jury delib­er­at­ed for three hours across two days before reach­ing the guilty verdict.

Hunter Biden now faces up to 25 years in prison, though a lighter sen­tence is more like­ly since he has no pri­or con­vic­tions. This is not the end of his legal trou­bles, as he is also sched­uled to face a sep­a­rate case in Los Ange­les fed­er­al court in Sep­tem­ber for alleged­ly evad­ing $1.4 mil­lion in fed­er­al income tax.
