Hunter Biden Faces 9 Tax Charges Indictment

December  11, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to AP News, Hunter Biden has been indicted on nine tax charges in California, marking an escalation in the special counsel investigation scrutinizing the business dealings of President Joe Biden’s son.

Against the backdrop of the looming 2024 election, the latest charges, consisting of three felonies and six misdemeanors, were filed on Thursday.

These allegations add to the existing federal firearms charges in Delaware, where Hunter Biden is accused of violating laws prohibiting drug users from possessing guns in 2018. This legal turmoil follows the collapse of a plea deal earlier in the summer, which would have spared him jail time, steering the case toward a potential trial at a time when his father is actively campaigning for reelection.

Special counsel David Weiss asserted in a statement that Hunter Biden had “spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle rather than paying his tax bills.” The charges primarily revolve around approximately $1.4 million in taxes owed by Hunter Biden for the years 2016 to 2019, a period during which he openly admitted to grappling with addiction.

Although the back taxes have since been settled, the indictment raises serious legal implications for the 53-year-old Biden scion. If convicted, Hunter Biden could face a maximum sentence of 17 years in prison.
