On Thursday, Hunter Biden was indicted in a Delaware court on three federal charges concerning his possession of a firearm while using drugs.

“Two of the counts carry a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, while the third has a maximum of five years,” NBC News reported.

Dave Weiss, Special Counsel, indicted Hunter Biden after a plea agreement failed to materialize last month.

According to ABC News, he was accused of “one count of False Statement in Purchase of a Firearm, one count of False Statement Related to Information Required to be Kept By Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, and one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Person who is an Unlawful User of or Addicted to a Controlled Substance.”

In October 2020, Hunter Biden revealed in an online conversation that his former partner and his deceased brother’s widow had disposed of a gun.

The following day, additional text messages from Hunter were released which provided further evidence of the situation he and his family were facing.

In these texts, Hunter shared detailed information with a family friend about what was occurring.

Hunter shared that his deceased brother’s wife, Hallie Biden, had thrown away his gun due to her fear that he could potentially harm himself or their children.

This matter was then brought to the attention of the police, FBI and Secret Service.

Here are is just one of the disturbing messages:

NBC News reported:

Federal prosecutors have indicted Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, on gun charges, court documents show.

Biden was indicted in Delaware federal court on three counts tied to the possession of a gun while using narcotics.

Two counts are tied to Biden allegedly filing a form claiming that he was not using illegal drugs at the time he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018. The third count alleges that he possessed a firearm while using a narcotic.

Last month, US Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of David Weiss, US Attorney for Delaware, as Special Counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation. Additionally, federal prosecutors declared that plea negotiations had reached a standstill and asserted that the case was destined for trial according to a court filing.

Subsequently, Thursday’s charges related to firearms were not the only legal troubles facing Hunter Biden.

Weiss previously withdrew Hunter’s tax-related charges in Delaware and stated that such offenses would be tried in either California or DC. Consequently, prosecutors have noted that the venue for these offenses lies outside of Delaware.
