WASHINGTON (AP) — A gun count that had been part of a collapsed plea deal in the Hunter Biden case has been dismissed as a judge signed off on a prosecution request. Wednesday’s order from U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika formally removes a gun-possession charge that has now been replaced by a three-count indictment filed after the agreement imploded in July. The president’s son is charged with violating measures against drug users having guns when he bought and kept a revolver for about 11 days in 2018, a period where he has acknowledged struggling with addiction. He had pleaded not guilty.
