Hunter Biden Found Guilty: Here’s What He Had to Say Afterward

( – President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, struggled with drug addiction for years. His antics while under the influence have now come back to haunt him. The first son was recently found guilty of multiple felonies.

On Tuesday, June 11, a federal jury in Delaware found Hunter guilty of three felony gun charges. Those charges included making a false statement while buying a gun, making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a licensed dealer, and possession of a firearm by a drug addict.

The Department of Justice charged the president’s son after evidence revealed he was a drug user in 2018 when he bought a pistol. Hunter lied on the background check form when he purchased the gun, stating he was not a drug addict.

The Hill reported Hunter made a statement after the jury reached its verdict, saying he was “grateful today for the love and support” he experienced from his family, friends, and community. He said that he’s “blessed to experience” the gift of recovery “one day at a time.”

Special Counsel David Weiss also issued a statement after the verdict. He pointed out that the case wasn’t just about addiction, which hurts families across America. It was “about the illegal choices” Hunter made while he was on drugs, including lying to the government and possessing the weapon.

One of the jurors who convicted the president’s son told reporters that the defense team made a mistake by calling Hunter’s daughter, Naomi, to the stand. They said it didn’t help the case. “No daughter should have to testify against her dad,” the juror said. Ultimately, they found him guilty because the evidence showed he knew he was a drug addict when he bought the gun.

After the verdict, President Biden said he and his wife, Jill Biden, love Hunter and are proud of who he is today. He touched on the issue of addiction. He also said that he “will accept the outcome” of the case and “will continue to respect the judicial process” while his son appealed the conviction.

Hunter now faces 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $750,000. Experts believe his sentence will be much lighter because he’s a first-time offender.
