Hunter Biden, the son of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, is accused of the illegal purchase and possession of a gun. The start date of the trial in a court in Wilmington (Delaware) is provisionally set for June 3.

The president's son has acknowledged battling a crack addiction during that period in 2018, but his lawyers maintain that he did not break the law. Judge Noreika argues that Hunter Biden's lawyers have not provided “anything concrete” to support the conclusion that someone really influenced the special counsel's team. “The accused has not proven one or the other," says the judge's resolution. The judge has rejected based on the case diversion agreement that initially been reached and then abandoned by the prosecutor. A ruling is pending on whether the right to possess a weapon without being drug-free violates the constitutional rights contained in the U.S. Constitution. The agreement to file the gun case also admitted the commission of two crimes of tax fraud in 2017 and 2018 (already regularized with the payment of one million dollars) for which he was going to be sentenced to lesser penalties.
