Hunter Biden’s license to practice law in Washington, D.C., was suspended on Tuesday following his federal gun charges conviction earlier this month.

As of Tuesday morning, Hunter is “suspended immediately from the practice of law” in D.C., pending a formal proceeding that will determine whether to uphold the suspension. The District of Columbia Court of Appeals E-Filing system shows the order was filed on Tuesday. 

The Office of the Disciplinary Counsel in Washington, D.C., who sent a letter to the D.C. Court of Appeals last week, chose to suspend the first son’s license after his guilty verdict on June 11th

D.C. law states that lawyers must be disbarred if convicted of such crimes. The president’s son’s license will most likely remain suspended until a “final judgment of conviction” has been certified.

The suspension comes after a Delaware jury convicted Hunter of three felony counts earlier this month, with each coming from his 2018 purchase of a Colt Cobra 38 SPL firearm.

On a federal gun purchase form, he checked “no” when asked on a form if he used or was addicted to illicit drugs. After he unlawfully possessed the firearm for 11 days.

The trial was centered around Hunter’s crack cocaine addiction and testimonies from his daughter, ex-wife, ex-girlfriend, and late brother Beau Biden’s widow with whom he had a past relationship with. 

Meanwhile, a sentencing date has not yet been scheduled for Hunter, but he still faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison and $750,000 in fines. However, first-time offenders are not usually given the maximum penalty, and federal sentencing guidelines recommend on average 15-21 months in prison. 

Additionally, his attorney, Abbe Lowell, requested a new trial on Monday, citing a procedural matter. 

After receiving a guilty verdict, Hunter vowed to pursue all available legal challenges. President Joe Biden has also claimed that he will not pardon his son.
