Hunter Biden Law License Suspended After Gun Crime Guilty Verdict: Report

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden won’t be able to practice law in Washington, D.C., after a jury convicted him on felony gun charges last week, according to a new letter sent by disciplinary counsel in Washington.

Last week, a jury in Wilmington, Delaware, found the first son guilty of three felony counts for lying on a federal firearms application, which constituted a “serious crime” under the District of Columbia’s Bar licensing rules.

The Court of Appeal’s Disciplinary Counsel sent a letter to Hunter Biden’s counsel Monday evening informing him his license would be suspended, according to the Washington Post.

Hunter Biden was “suspended immediately from the practice of law in the District of Columbia” pending further investigation into the case, according to the letter sent to defense attorney Abbe Lowell.

The disciplinary counsel said it made a determination that the crime involved dishonesty or immorality as defined by the District’s bar licensing code.

Hunter Biden, 54, has been licensed to practice law in Washington, D.C., since 2007 under his full name Robert H. Biden. A search on DCbar.com lists his status as “active” and in “GOOD STANDING” despite the notice that was reportedly given to his defense counsel Monday evening.

The trial drew intense focus to the younger Biden’s past drug use, which the jury determined he sought to conceal on a federal gun purchasing form.

Biden stated falsely that he was not using or addicted to illegal drugs at the time and unlawfully possessed a Colt Cobra handgun for 11 days in 2018 while he was addicted to crack cocaine, the jury found.

The most serious gun charges carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, but the first son may receive a lighter sentence due to his status as a first-time offender. The three charges combined carry a maximum sentence of 25 years behind bars.

Lowell’s reported receipt of the letter Monday came just hours after Hunter Biden’s attorney briefly filed a request for a new trial in the Delaware federal court only to retract the request abruptly without explanation.

The first son is still expected to appeal the overall jury verdict, which would be considered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.

    Hunter Biden had a law license? OMG, he is a travesty in all forms. Drugged out on Coke, sleeping with whores and his brother’s wife. What kind of lawyer can he be? Wait, that’s right, he is the son of Joe Biden and a big part of the criminal crime family. It will be great to see them “all fall down”. The whole entire family and that does include Jill, are totally loosers.
