Jury in Hunter Biden gun trial begins deliberations, will return Tuesday

Evidence of alleged drug use was described by prosecutors as "ugly" and "overwhelming."

WILMINGTON, Del. - A jury will return to court Tuesday morning to consider whether to convict President Biden's son Hunter of federal gun charges in a closely watched case whose outcome could affect his father's reelection chances.

The 12 jurors began deliberating Monday afternoon following closing arguments by prosecutors and defense lawyers at a trial that focused in searing detail on Hunter Biden's years-long struggle with drug addiction.

"The evidence was personal. It was ugly, and it was overwhelming," assistant special counsel Leo Wise said in his hour-long closing arguments Monday. "It was also absolutely necessary."
