Previous Plea Deal
- In August, Hunter Biden’s initial plea deal was rejected after the judge found discrepancies.
- The earlier deal permitted Hunter Biden to plead guilty to evading taxes on over $1.5 million of income for 2017 and 2018. He would have received probation instead of incarceration.
Controversies Surrounding Agreement
- A separate agreement was constructed by Weiss, providing Hunter Biden immunity from possible forthcoming charges. This agreement aimed to erase a felony gun violation off his record.
- Hunter Biden’s attorneys insisted that despite the initial plea deal’s breakdown, the terms of the “diversion agreement” should stand. They argued that Weiss should honor the unique agreement, alleging that the government withdrew from a “previously agreed-upon Plea Agreement.”
