The verdict comes after six days of testimony from witnesses that include ex-girlfriends, an ex-wife, and law enforcement officials. Biden did not testify in his own case.

The jury in the Hunter Biden gun trial on Tuesday found the first son guilty on all three federal charges in connection with the purchase of a gun in 2018.

Biden was on trial for having stated on the gun purchase application that he did not use drugs, while allegedly having been addicted to crack cocaine.

The charges on which he was found guilty include make a false statement on the gun application and being in possession of firearm while being a drug user.

Biden now faces up to 25 years in prison, and a fine of up to $750,000, according to court filings. However, first time offenders rarely get the maximum penalty. Hunter Biden is set to be sentenced by District Judge Maryellen Noreika.

The verdict cames after six days of testimony from witnesses that include ex-girlfriends, an ex-wife, and law enforcement officials. Biden did not testify in his own case.

This is the first time that a child of a sitting president has been convicted of a crime, though the crimes occurred more than two years before Joe Biden’s inauguration.
