Hunter Biden will not testify in gun possession case

Hunter Biden is not expected to testify in court in the case of violations in the possession of weapons.

In doing so, the judge will instruct the jury that they should not cite that Biden “did not testify” in the case when making their decision. A final decision on Hunter Biden’s testimony has yet to be announced, but is expected to take place after the defense presents its arguments in front of the jury.

Monday marked the beginning of the second week of Hunter Biden’s trial. This is the first time in American history that a child of a sitting president is on trial. The indictment was brought by the U.S. Department of Justice. The investigation into Hunter Biden’s gun possession case began in 2018, when it became known that during that period he was taking drugs and at the same time possessed a revolver. U.S. law prohibits people who use or possess drugs from purchasing or possessing guns.

In September 2023, a Delaware grand jury approved charges brought against Biden by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for three offenses related to gun possession. Two of the offenses relate to lying in writing about not taking drugs when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver in 2018. The third relates to violating a law that prohibits drug addicts from possessing firearms.

Biden could face up to 25 years in prison: two counts carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, while the third count carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
