Share

Hunter Biden‘s guilty verdict may not have been as easy as it had seemed, despite the jury only deliberated for one hour on Monday and two hours on Tuesday morning.

As The Blast reported, the President’s son, 54, was on trial in relation to a 2018 gun purchase, where he was accused of lying on federal paperwork, claiming he was not using or addicted to drugs at the time of purchase.

While Hunter pleaded not guilty to all three charges, the jury found him guilty, and he is now facing up to 25 years in prison.

Following Hunter Biden’s guilty verdict, one of the jurors, who has remained anonymous, has revealed what went on behind closed doors in the deliberation room.

“I am more grateful today for the love and support I experienced this last week from Melissa, my family, my friends, and my community than I am disappointed by the outcome,” he said, per NBC. “Recovery is possible by the grace of God, and I am blessed to experience that gift one day at a time.”

Hunter’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, also broke his silence, stating that the defense team is “naturally disappointed.”

Following the news, juror No. 10 explained that they continued their deliberation on Tuesday morning because they went into Monday evening deadlocked. The anonymous juror explained that “no politics came into play” during deliberations.

He also told CNN that they felt calling Hunter’s daughter, Naomi Biden, to the stand was a mistake because they felt bad for her.

Juror No. 10 further explained what was going through his mind during the Hunter Biden gun trial, claiming that he based his decision surrounding the fact that Hunter did not disclose he was a drug addict when he previously admitted to using cocaine.

“We all knew he was a drug addict,” the first juror added. “In his mind, how could he not know he was an addict?”

The required form asked: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” Hunter answered, “No.”

What Led To His Downfall?

The juror later told CNN that Hunter Biden’s “downfall” was when he said he didn’t want the gun back after Hallie Biden disposed of it in a grocery store dumpster.

“When he said he did not want that gun back and that gun sat in evidence for almost five years, I think that’s what may have been what led to his downfall. If he had taken possession of that gun, I don’t know if we would have even had a trial,” the juror told the outlet.

While many witnesses, including his exes and an FBI agent, took the stand, Hunter Biden did not testify, which the jurors claim was a good decision.

“I didn’t think it would be a good idea for him to testify in his own defense,” the juror said.

Hunter Biden was convicted on all three counts related to gun possession while using narcotics and could face up to 25 years in prison. Two counts have a maximum sentence of 10 years each, and the third has a maximum of five years. Each count includes a maximum fine of $250,000.

The sentencing date will be announced at a later time.
