Joe Biden’s son pleads guilty to two tax charges and avoids charges for illegal possession of a weapon

Hunter Biden, son of United States President Joe Biden, has accepted a plea bargain to plead guilty to two tax charges. He admits not having declared to the tax office on time the income he received in 2017 and 2018, and not having paid for it, in exchange for prosecutors recommending probation for him, with which he could avoid going to jail.

The settlement also includes what in US judicial slang is called “pretrial diversion” as it relates to the charge of illegal possession of a firearm. This mechanism serves to avoid a traditional prosecution and that the defendant goes to a program of community supervision. Hunter Biden agrees to use drugs in 24 months and never buy a firearm again.

If a federal judge accepts the deal, it could spell the end of the Hunter Biden investigation, which has embroiled his father, Joe Biden, whose political rivals have used these inquiries to cast doubt on the son’s business dealings abroad and to describe the president’s family as corrupt. The president’s son has to appear in the next few days in federal court to plead guilty.

This investigation was opened in 2018 during the term of former President Donald Trump (2017-2021) and has been used by Republicans since 2020 to attack the Democratic president, whom they accuse of not having made any effort to bring this investigation to the end.

“With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, I understand that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved,” his lawyer said in a statement collected by New York Times.
