Federal Judge denies Hunter Biden’s request to dismiss tax charges

by | Apr 1, 2024

A federal judge has denied Hunter Biden’s efforts to dismiss his felony tax indictment, clearing the path for his scheduled trial date of June 3.

Hunter has pleaded not guilty to all charges, totaling nine, where he is accused of failing to file and pay his taxes by the deadline on numerous occasions, and in engaging in a tax-evasion scheme by way of filing falsified tax returns and ‘cooking’ the books on his company’s payroll.

The judge, in an 82-page ruling on Monday, rejected eight total motions to dismiss.

If convicted, Hunter could face up to 17 years in prison.
