WILMINGTON, Del. (NEWSnet/AP) — Hunter Biden’s federal gun case will go to trial next month, despite efforts by lawyers to delay the case.

A judge rejected Hunter Biden’s request to push the trial until September.

Hunter Biden's team requested the delay to give them more time to prepare for the case. 

President Joe Biden’s son is accused of lying about his drug use in October 2018 on a form to buy a gun that he kept for about 11 days.

Hunter Biden, who has pleaded not guilty, has acknowledged struggling with an addiction to crack cocaine during that period in 2018, but his lawyers have said he didn’t break the law.
