Wilmington: Hunter Biden withdrew his motion seeking a new trial on federal gun charges after government prosecutors said his motion was based on a misunderstanding of appellate practice.

Hunter Biden became the first child of a sitting president to be convicted of a felony on June 11 after a jury found him guilty on all three counts related to his lying about illegal drug use when he purchased a handgun in 2018.

Lawyers for President Joe Biden's son had requested a new trial last month because they said a federal appeals court did not give the trial court a formal green light to proceed after dismissing his appeals.

Federal prosecutors said Biden's motion was based on "an apparent misunderstanding of appellate practice" in a court filing on Monday, which prompted the withdrawal.

Biden has denied wrongdoing, and his lawyers have said he will appeal the conviction.
