Judge Rejects Eight Motions From Hunter Biden’s Lawyers to Dismiss Tax Charges

Hunter Biden is heading to trial this June on tax charges after a judge shut down eight motions from his attorneys.

 

According to Fox

A federal judge in Los Angeles rejected Hunter Biden’s request to dismiss tax charges accusing the president’s son of a four-year scheme to avoid paying $1.4 million in taxes while living an extravagant lifestyle.

Among the claims that U.S. District Judge Marc Scarsi dismissed in eight separate motions were that federal prosecutors supposedly caved to pressure from Republicans or that the younger Biden had immunity from a previous plea deal that he had negotiated.

The move comes after Hunter’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, made his case before the judge for three hours. Judge Scarsi said he would issue a ruling by April 17. 

Hunter Biden, 54, has pleaded not guilty to failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes between 2016 and 2019, while allegedly spending millions of dollars on drugs, escorts, exotic cars and other big-ticket items.

Last year Hunter agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges for failing to pay taxes in 2017 and 2018, but that was derailed when the judge raised questions about the terms of the deal he struck with the government, and said she believed she was being asked to act as a “rubber stamp” for the deal. He was later indicted in December on nine charges, including three felonies, for other alleged acts of tax evasion.
