Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, has pleaded not guilty to charges related to lying about his drug use while purchasing a handgun, marking the first-ever criminal prosecution of a sitting US president’s child.

The charges against Hunter Biden include three counts related to providing false information on a federal form to acquire a Colt Cobra handgun in 2018 and for possessing the firearm as an illegal drug user.

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, had requested that the hearing be conducted by video to avoid the logistical challenges associated with his in-person appearance. However, this request was denied by Judge Burke, who insisted that defendants must appear in person.

Abbe Lowell intends to file a motion to dismiss the case, believing that the original agreement remains in effect. Judge Burke indicated that such a motion should be filed by November 3.

However, Hunter Biden has never held a position in the White House or his father’s campaign, and President Joe Biden has emphasised the independence of his Justice Department in any investigation involving a family member.
