(ConservativeHub.com) – On Thursday, January 11, Hunter Biden appeared in a federal court to plead not guilty to the charges Special Counsel David Weiss brought forward against him.
The proceedings were overseen by Judge Mark Scarsi. The U.S. Marshals Service had processed Hunter following the hearing.
Weiss’ investigation had resulted in nine federal tax charges being filed against Hunter Biden. The trial has been set for June 20.
In December, Weiss charged Hunter alleging that Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, had engaged in a “four-year scheme” and failed to pay his federal income taxes from January 2017 to October 2020. Hunter has also been charged for allegedly filing false tax reports at the time.
Weiss’ charges were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, and they include three felonies and six misdemeanors, totaling $1.4 million in owed taxes. Since that time the taxes have all been paid off.
In the indictment, Hunter is alleged to have “engaged in a four-year scheme” which included him not paying $1.4 million in federal taxes, while also avoiding filing his taxes in the 2018 tax year. It is also alleged that he filed false returns “in or about February 2020.”
Weiss has further indicated that during that time, Hunter “spent millions of dollars” on supporting his luxurious lifestyle while not paying any of his overdue taxes.
On Thursday, Judge Scarsi decided on the same condition for Hunter’s release as the Delaware court had decided in October, which include disclosing travel plans, looking for employment, submit to drug tests, go to counseling, and avoiding firearms and drugs/alcohol.
