Hunter Biden, the son of U.S. President Joe Biden, has refuted charges pertaining to gun laws by entering a plea of not guilty in court on Tuesday, according to sources.
The charges against Biden include allegations of lying about his drug use while purchasing a handgun in 2018. He is also accused of falsifying a federal firearms form and illegal possession of a gun while using a narcotic.
The case unfolded in a Delaware federal court where Biden is expected to battle these charges. Prior to this, an agreement that included a diversion linked to a firearm charge and a guilty plea to two misdemeanor tax charges fell apart in court.
Hunter Biden's legal team has yet to make a public statement regarding the charges or the not guilty plea. As the case proceeds, it is expected to draw significant national attention due to Biden's high-profile status as the president's son.
