Hunter Biden’s Law License Suspended After Conviction

Clear Facts

  • Hunter Biden’s law license in D.C. has been suspended following his conviction in a federal gun trial. The D.C. Court of Appeals ordered immediate suspension.
  • The decision regarding the suspension was made after the D.C. bar classified Biden’s crimes as “serious crimes”, which initiated a formal proceeding to determine the nature of the offenses.
  • Biden, who also holds a law license in Connecticut, could potentially face a prison sentence of up to 25 years and a possible maximum fine of $750,000, although there is speculation of a lighter sentence due to his status as a first-time offender.

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has had his law license in Washington D.C. suspended immediately. This decision was reached after he was found guilty in a federal gun trial in Delaware earlier this month.

The D.C Court of Appeals has stated that Biden is “suspended immediately from the practice of law … pending resolution of this matter” following his conviction on three felony counts, recognized as “serious crimes” according to D.C. Bar rules.

Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby, the signatory of the order, also directed the Board on Professional Responsibility to “institute a formal proceeding to determine the nature of the offense and whether it involves moral turpitude.” This signals the gravity of the situation and paves the way for a detailed evaluation of Biden’s offenses.

Biden has reportedly been a member of the D.C. bar since 2007, but has not actively practiced law in recent years. Instead, he has focused on other ventures, such as publishing his 2021 memoir “Beautiful Things” and developing his art career.

A disciplinary office in Washington D.C. recommended the suspension of Biden’s law license a week after his conviction. He was found guilty of falsifying paperwork for a revolver and of possessing the firearm while being a drug addict in 2018.

Biden also has a law license in Connecticut that is currently under administrative suspension due to an unpaid fee, which indicates that his professional standing in other jurisdictions is also being questioned.

The outcome of the gun trial could potentially lead to Biden serving a prison term of up to 25 years and paying fines of up to $750,000. However, it is suggested that Biden might receive a lighter sentence as he is a first-time offender.

Biden’s legal team submitted a filing requesting a new trial, suggesting that they are actively seeking to challenge the conviction.

President Joe Biden has publicly stated he has no intention of pardoning his son or commuting his sentence if he is convicted, emphasising his commitment to the rule of law, irrespective of personal ties.

Apart from the gun trial, Hunter Biden is also scheduled to face a tax trial in California in September. These charges arise from the breakdown of a plea deal last year.

    How are we ever going to clean up the immoral, corrupt and illegal behavior if we let a person off the recommended sentence just because it it his first offense?
    Too many times we find our Congress men and women guilty. These are our lawmakers, folks, and they break the law. They, of all people, should know to follow the law! Why should they be treated with “kid gloves”?

      More BS gun laws. You should be allowed to carry your gun wherever you go. You don’t turn into a criminal because you walk on a plane or going to school. People were allowed to carry there weapons on planes 9/11 wouldn’t have happened.
