Judge Rejects Claim Hunter Biden Plea Agreement in Enforceable

It would appear that poor Hunter Biden is going to have to argue his tax case in court.

Once again, the court has rejected the premise that a negotiated plea deal should be honored.

The deal was never formalized because the presiding judge did not like the terms, which would have granted Hunter immunity on charges that were not yet before the court.

Not Valid

While I am no legal expert, I do know that no plea deal is official until it has been approved by the presiding judge.

Hunter thought he had a deal in place that would have tossed his tax charges, but when the judge saw the terms, she told both sides that the terms were unacceptable.

Hutner’s attorneys then puffed out their chest and told prosecutors to throw out the deal, when they very easily could have renegotiated it.

Hunter’s attorneys then proceeded to attack prosecutors at every opportunity, so now we have this standoff that resulted in no plea deal and Hunter going to trial.

Hunter’s attorneys have once again tried to make the argument that the plea deal should stand, but Judge Mark Scarsi, a federal district judge in California’s Central district, disagreed.

Judge Scarsi, in part, ruled, “Having found that the Diversion Agreement is a contract that binds the parties but that the parties made the Probation Officer’s signature a condition precedent to its performance, the Court turns to Defendant’s theory of immunity: that the United States’ obligation to refrain from prosecuting Defendant under section II(15) of the Diversion Agreement is currently in force. It is not.

“The immunity provision is not one exempted from the term of the contract under the survival clause.”

Hunter’s trial date has been set for June 20, 2024.

If Hunter is convicted, he could face a maximum of 17 years for tax charges and another 25 for gun charges he is facing in another case.

While this case is moving forward, do not get your hopes up that Hunter will actually do jail time here.

Since daddy got him out of trouble every time he broke the law, Hunter will be considered a first-time offender and likely to receive fines and supervised release time.
