There is mixed reaction in public. While some support Biden and his trauma which he felt after the death of his brother Beau’s untimely death in 2015 due to brain cancer, on the other hand people and several media outlets accuse him and his father of using their political influence and money to divert the case and ease up the judiciary on him.

One juror even developed sympathy for him and remarked that – “I really don’t think that Hunter belongs in jail.”

The juror emphasized their primary attention on evidence rather than Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, affirming that political matters were not discussed.

The juror stated that the other jurors expressed remorse for the summons of Naomi Biden, Hunter’s daughter, to provide testimony. According to him, he believed it was an error to have her testify in court.

Some people also believe that he has been unduly punished for being famous and son of the President of the United States.

Whatever be the case, the recent conviction of Hunter Biden is definitely going to make an effect on the upcoming US elections, 2024.
