A court filing on Tuesday showed Hunter Biden will plead guilty to two counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax.
He will also plead guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.
CNN’s Kara Scannell noted the firearm charge is “diverted,” which she explained means the charge will “go away” if he meets a specific set of conditions.

According to The Hill, if a judge accepts the plea deal, he would likely avoid prison time.
Hunter Biden’s guilty plea comes after, as reports have indicated, five years of an investigation.
The Wall Street Journal notes the guilty plea will avoid a trial as his father is running for re-election.
