Hunter Biden will not testify in gun trial, says lawyer

Hunter Biden, son of US President Joe Biden, will not testify when his criminal trial resumes on charges that he hid his drug use from the government in 2018 to illegally buy a gun, according to the CNN .

Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s lawyer, indicated in court this Monday (10) that his client will not testify.

Prosecutors in the first criminal trial of a U.S. president’s son wrapped up their portion Friday after a week of testimony that offered an intimate look at the younger Biden’s years of struggle with alcohol and drug abuse that, according to prosecutors, they legally prevented him from purchasing a gun.

Hunter Biden, 54, has pleaded not guilty to charges of lying about his addiction when he filled out a government screening document for the Colt Cobra revolver and of illegally possessing the gun for 11 days.

The trial in U.S. District Court in Wilmington, Delaware, follows another historic first – the May 30 criminal conviction of Donald Trump, the first former U.S. president to be found guilty of a crime. Trump is the Republican challenger to Joe Biden, a Democrat, in the November 5 presidential election.
