Attorneys for Hunter Biden withdraws motion for new trial

(NBC, KYMA/KECY) - Hunter Biden's attorneys have withdrawn their motion for a new trial in his gun case.

The president's son had asked for a new trial last month, citing a "lack of jurisdiction."

In a filing in federal court in Delaware from Tuesday, Biden's team withdrew that motion.

Hunter Biden was found guilty last month on three counts tied to possession of a gun while using narcotics. Two of the counts carry maximum prison sentences of 10 years, while the third has a maximum of five years.

Even after Tuesday's filing, Biden could still appeal his guilty verdict on different grounds.
