Hunter Biden found guilty in Delaware trial

First son Hunter Biden was found guilty of all charges in his landmark criminal case centered on his 2018 firearm purchase.

Hunter Biden faced a trial this month that lasted more than a week and included emotional testimony from members of his family, including daughter Naomi Biden, ex-wife Kathleen Buhle and sister-in-law turned girlfriend Hallie Biden.

Prosecutors have been trying to prove that Hunter Biden lied on a federal firearms form, known as ATF Form 4473, in October 2018 when he checked a box labeled “No” when asked whether he was an unlawful user of a firearm or was addicted to controlled substances. Hunter Biden purchased the gun at a store called StarQuest Shooters & Survival Supply in Wilmington.

Hunter Biden was charged with making a false statement in the purchase of a gun, making a false statement regarding information required to be retained by a federally licensed firearms dealer, and possession of a gun by a person is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

He pleaded not guilty in the case.

Hunter Biden has a well-documented history of substance abuse, which was most notably documented in his 2021 memoir, “Beautiful Things,” which walks readers through his previous need to smoke crack cocaine every 20 minutes, and how his addiction became so prolific was that he referred to himself as a “crack dad” for drug dealers, and anecdotes involving drug deals, such as a crack dealer Biden from Washington, DC, nicknamed “Bicycles.”

His defense team, led by attorney Abbe Lowell, did not dispute Hunter Biden’s long history with substance abuse, which includes alcohol addiction. Instead, he argued that on the day Hunter Biden purchased the Cobra Colt .38, he did not identify himself as an active drug addict, citing the first son’s sting in rehab prior to the October 2018 purchase.
