(WDNews) – Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has been found guilty on all three felony charges related to a 2018 gun purchase. Jurors convicted Biden of lying to a federally licensed gun dealer, making a false statement on a mandatory gun-purchase form, and illegally possessing a firearm for 11 days.

The charges stem from an incident where Biden claimed on the application that he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs, a statement prosecutors successfully argued was false.

Judge Maryellen Noreika will sentence Biden, who faces up to 25 years in prison. However, legal experts note that first-time offenders rarely receive the maximum penalty, and it’s uncertain whether Biden will serve any time behind bars.

This case has drawn significant public attention due to Biden’s high-profile status and the ongoing scrutiny of his personal and professional life.
