Hunter Biden’s law license was suspended by the D.C. Court of Appeals on Tuesday, following his conviction on three federal gun charges earlier this month. This development adds to the ongoing saga surrounding the president’s son. Despite facing a potential maximum sentence of 25 years in prison, it is anticipated that Hunter, being a first-time offender, may not receive the full penalty.

Hunter had been licensed to practice law since 2007. The suspension restricts his ability to practice law solely within Washington, D.C., according to court documents. This decision follows his conviction on three serious felony charges in Delaware. The court has ordered a detailed investigation to determine whether these crimes involve “serious” ethical misconduct.

In the meantime, Hunter is required to adhere to specific rules that apply to suspended lawyers. This includes submitting an official affidavit that could impact when he will be permitted to practice law again. The Disciplinary Counsel has been instructed to inform the court if the matter is resolved without requiring additional legal proceedings.

Hunter Biden has had various professional engagements, including his work in the field of law. After graduating from Yale Law School, Hunter joined MBNA America, a bank holding company that was a significant contributor to his father’s political campaigns.

On June 11, a  Delaware jury has convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal felony gun charges he faced, concluding that he violated laws meant to prevent drug addicts from owning firearms. President Joe Biden already has his hands full with bad polling, stubborn inflation, and an increasingly unstable world, but now his own son will give him more headaches.

Republican lawmakers claimed late last month that Hunter Biden lied to Congress during his recent deposition following the House Ways and Means Committee’s vote to release IRS whistleblower records. “Hunter Biden has shown once again he believes there are two systems of justice in this country — one for his family, and one for everyone else,” House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) said in a statement. “Not only did Hunter Biden refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he then came before Congress and lied.”
