According to new reports, the previously agreed upon plea deal between Hunter Biden and Federal prosecutors has now reportedly apparently fallen through.

Following a dramatic court session on Wednesday in which prosecutors and defense attorneys sparred over the possibility of further charges, a plea agreement that President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, had agreed with prosecutors looked to be in risk.

The younger Biden agreed into a deal to avoid receiving another gun charge because he had anticipated that he would plead guilty to minor tax charges. On Wednesday, prosecutors reiterated that the investigation into Hunter Biden’s activities was still ongoing and acknowledged that he may be charged with more international lobbying.

The U.S. attorney in Delaware, David Weiss, who was appointed by the former president Donald Trump and has remained in office under the Biden administration to see through the criminal investigation into the president’s son, was supposed to have concluded his years-long investigation with the plea agreement with federal prosecutors. Hunter Biden promised to never again acquire a firearm as part of the deal, and prosecutors agreed not to press a related felony gun possession case against him.

As part of the plea deal, Weiss’s office agreed to propose a probation-only sentence, albeit the judge ultimately had the last word.

On each offense, Hunter Biden may get a maximum punishment of 12 months in jail and a $25,000 fine. If Hunter Biden breaks his vow to not acquire a gun and to abstain from drugs, he may receive a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a large fine.
