Biden Refuses to Commute Son Hunter’s Sentence Amid Legal Woes

On Thursday, President Joe Biden declared that he would refrain from utilizing his presidential authority to lessen the sentence that his son Hunter would face for his federal felony conviction concerning gun-related offenses.

After a news conference at the Group of Seven summit of the world’s wealthiest democracies, the president released the statement. When asked if he intends to commute his son’s sentence, President Biden firmly stated that he will not do so. Hunter Biden’s sentencing date has yet to be scheduled, and the three charges against him hold a maximum penalty of up to 25 years in prison. However, such a severe sentence is improbable for a first-time offender.

The decision on how much time, if any, Hunter Biden will serve behind bars will be left to U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika, who was appointed to the bench by former Republican President Donald Trump.

President Biden's announcement came a day following the White House declining to dismiss the possibility of a commutation for Hunter Biden. The president and the White House have continuously asserted that Biden will not issue a pardon for his son.

At the news conference, President Biden expressed his pride in his son's journey of recovery from addiction, portraying him as one of the most brilliant and honorable individuals he knows. He affirmed that he would respect the jury’s decision and not pardon Hunter.
