President Joe Biden’s son Hunter could face jail time if he consumes drugs or alcohol after a plea deal fell through on charges of illegally possessing a handgun and failing to pay two years’ worth of federal taxes. After Hunter pleaded “not guilty,” U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika stipulated that he “continue or actively seek employment” and tell the court “in writing” about “all international travel plans” as part of a release deal until he returns to court at a future date.  Hunter will also be required to submit to random drug and alcohol testing to ensure his compliance. The release stipulated that “violating any of the foregoing conditions of release may result in the immediate issuance of a warrant for your arrest.”  Hunter had been expected to plead guilty under a deal which would have given him “broad immunity from prosecution in perpetuity,” but Noreika rejected the plea bargain.
