Biden Trial on Gun Charges Set To Start 17 Days Prior to Tax Trial

( – Hunter Biden has a busy schedule waiting for him in June. On June 3, the trial over his gun charges is likely to begin in Delaware. Then, just 17 days later, he’ll have his tax trial, for which he will have to travel to California to continue defending himself. If he’s convicted on all the charges against him, he could spend most of the rest of his natural life in prison.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) published press releases for each of Biden’s indictments, announcing the firearms charges on September 14, 2023, and the tax charges on December 7, 2023. In total, the first son faces three felony gun counts as well as three felonies and six misdemeanors for his alleged tax offenses. He attempted to cut a plea deal, but that fell through, so now he has to go to court on all charges.

Biden’s legal woes began in 2016, when he allegedly began to skip out on his tax payments. Prosecutors claim the first son failed to pay on time through 2019, and then he allegedly created false deductions for his 2018 return in order to reduce his heavy liability. The DOJ claims Biden had the money to pay his taxes on time, but he instead “spent millions of dollars” on his excessive lifestyle. Additionally, he stands accused of withdrawing large amounts of money from his company without going through the appropriate payroll and tax channels.

The DOJ says Biden broke the law again on October 12, 2018, when he allegedly lied on paperwork he filled out to buy a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver. Prosecutors claim the first son knowingly provided false information regarding his drug addiction, withheld vital information about his cocaine use from the gun dealer, and kept the firearm in his possession until October 23, 2023, despite continuing to abuse drugs.

Convictions on both fronts could land Hunter Biden in prison for as long as 42 years, though actual sentences are typically less than the maximum established penalties.
