Hunter Biden Faces Sentencing within 120 Days

Hunter Biden, who has been found guilty in 3 cases, faces varying sentences. In 2 cases, he has been sentenced to 10 years in prison each, while in the third case, he has been sentenced to 5 years. According to federal guidelines, whether to reduce or increase the sentence depends on the judge.

According to The New York Times, since the individual has no criminal record and has not used any purchased firearms in any crimes, they usually receive a lighter sentence. It could range from 15 to 21 months. In each case, he will also have to pay a fine of 2 million rupees.

Hunter could be sentenced within 120 days (4 months). This means that any decision about his sentence will be made before the American presidential election.

Allegations Against Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden faces allegations of concealing true information when purchasing Colt Cobra handguns in October 2018. At the time, he had a history of drug addiction and regularly used drugs.
