BREAKING: Hunter Biden Found Guilty On All Counts In Federal Gun Case

On Tuesday, the 12-person jury in Hunter Biden's gun case handed down a guilty verdict on all charges against the president's son. Hunter could receive significant jail time after being found guilty of the three federal charges connected to a 2018 gun purchase.

The 54-year-old Biden makes history as being the first child of a sitting US president to be on trial and the first to be found guilty of a federal crime. Hunter was joined by several members of the Biden family, including First Lady Jill Biden, his wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, his half-sister Ashley Biden, friend Kevin Morris, his aunt Valerie Biden Owens, and President Biden's brother, James Biden. 

The president's son has been found guilty of making false statements on ATF Form 4473 while purchasing his Cobra Colt .38 in October 2018. The jury also found him guilty of possessing a firearm while addicted to an illegal substance. Hunter Biden, who suffered from drug addiction problems during that period, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him, and he is likely to appeal the verdict.

According to Fox News, Hunter is facing up to 25 years in prison, and he could be made to pay upwards of a $250,000 fine per offense. Hunter's defense team attempted to argue that he didn't lie on the ATF form because he believed at the time that he was addicted to an illegal substance like cocaine.

This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
