As part of the deal, The Department of Justice has agreed to recommend a probation sentence for both counts but a Judge will have the final say in sentencing. Additionally, Hunter Biden has agreed to enter a pretrial diversion agreement for his one felony charge of possessing a firearm while using illegal drugs. A pretrial diversion agreement “diverts certain offenders from traditional criminal justice processing to a program of supervision and services administered by the United States Probation Service.”
Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Christopher Clark, has issued a statement saying that this investigation “will ‘resolve’ the Justice Department’s long-running criminal probe into the president’s son.” He elaborated, “Hunter will take responsibility for two instances of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments when due pursuant to a plea agreement,” Clark said. “A firearm charge, which will be subject to a pretrial diversion agreement and will not be the subject of the plea agreement, will also be filed by the Government. I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life. He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”
