Hunter Bidens attorney eyes all legal options after conviction

SHARE NOW

An attorney for President Joe Biden’s son said he’ll pursue “all the legal challenges available” to Hunter Biden.

A Delaware jury convicted Hunter Biden, 54, of three felonies related to his use of crack cocaine while buying and owning a gun.

“We are naturally disappointed by today’s verdict,” Abbe Lowell, the younger Biden’s attorney, said in a statement.

“We respect the jury process, and as we have done throughout this case, we will continue to vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter,” he said. “Through all he has been through in his recovery, including this trial, Hunter has felt grateful for and blessed by the love and support of his family.”

Special counsel David Weiss indicted Hunter Biden in September 2023 in federal court in Delaware on three counts tied to the possession of a gun while using drugs. Two of the counts involve allegations that he allegedly lied on a form attesting that he was not using illegal drugs when he bought a .38 Special Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018. The third count alleges that he possessed a firearm while using illicit drugs.

After about three hours of deliberations, the jury convicted Hunter Biden of all charges on Tuesday. The president’s son did not take the stand in his own defense. The judge has not yet scheduled a sentencing date.

Hunter Biden faces up to 10 years in prison on the first two counts and five years on the third count.
