WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is expected to appear before a federal judge in Delaware to plead guilty to two tax crimes and admit possessing a gun as a drug user.
The anticipated pleas Wednesday are part of a deal with the Justice Department that’ll likely spare Hunter Biden time behind bars.
U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika was appointed by then-President Donald Trump and will preside over the hearing.
The judge must sign off on the deal, in which prosecutors will recommend two years of probation.
The deal was announced last month and ended a long-running Justice Department investigation into the taxes and foreign business dealings of the president’s second son.
