Hunter Biden arrives to courthouse for federal gun crime trial

Hunter Biden arrived to the Delaware courthouse for his federal gun crime trial Monday morning, clinging to his wife's hand as he walked into the building.

Hunter faces charges of making false statements in the purchase of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. Together, the charges carry a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison if he is convicted.

The charges could also carry a fine of $250,000.

The trial begins nearly a year after presiding Judge Maryellen Noreika questioned a plea deal between prosecutors and Hunter Biden, which subsequently fell apart.

Monday's proceedings will begin with jury selection.
