Hunter Biden withdraws request for new trial on unconstitutional gun charges

Source: United Press International

“Lawyers for Hunter Biden have withdrawn their request for a new gun trial, acknowledging in court documents that they misunderstood a litigious technicality that their ask was based on. Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty last month on three felony charges stemming from his purchase of a handgun in 2018 when he was allegedly struggling with drug addition, and faces up to 25 years’ imprisonment and hefty fines when sentenced. In late June, his attorneys argued for his client to be re-tried on the grounds that the trial started before a circuit court formally issued a mandate denying the 54-year-old Biden’s appeal, meaning the appeals court still maintained jurisdiction on the case, not the court that convicted him.” (07/10/24)
