An attorney representing Hunter Biden in his gun charge case brought by Special Counsel David Weiss abruptly quit on Friday.
Richard Jones filed paperwork to withdraw from Hunter’s case on Friday just days after Hunter Biden arrived to the federal courthouse in Delaware for his arraignment on felony gun charges.
Hunter Biden was indicted on federal gun charges last month.
Biden was indicted in a Delaware court on three counts related to his possession of a firearm while using drugs. He is facing up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Hunter Biden was charged with “one count of False Statement in Purchase of a Firearm, one count of False Statement Related to Information Required to be Kept By Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, and one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Person who is an Unlawful User of or Addicted to a Controlled Substance.” ABC News reported.
Special Counsel Dave Weiss indicted Hunter Biden after the sweetheart plea deal fell apart in August.
Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty to all three charges on Tuesday.
“Mr. Biden has been advised of, and consents to, our withdrawal,” Jones said in his filing.
FOX News reported:
Richard Jones, an attorney representing Hunter Biden in his federal gun charge case, filed paperwork Friday to withdraw himself from the matter.
The president’s son had pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware Tuesday morning after being charged in an indictment stemming from Special Counsel David Weiss’ investigation.
“Mr. Biden has been advised of, and consents to, our withdrawal. He also agrees this withdrawal will cause no material adverse effect or prejudice to him and remains completely satisfied with Messrs. [Abbe] Lowell’s and [Bartholomew] Dalton’s continued representation of him,” reads the document filed by Jones.
“Accordingly, our withdrawal as counsel will have no material adverse effect on Mr. Biden’s interests,” Jones added.
Last month’s gun-related charges aren’t the end of Hunter Biden’s legal problems. Weiss previously withdrew Hunter’s tax-related charges in Delaware and said the venue for the offenses are either in California or DC
