Hunter Biden, President Biden's son, returned to court on Friday for the final hearing in his federal firearms case in Delaware.

The trial is set to take place June 3 after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika rejected Hunter's bid to delay the prosecution. 

He was charged with two counts of making false statements about his use of drugs on a form to purchase a gun in October 2018. 

A third charge alleged that he possessed the firearm for about 11 days despite his history of drug use.

He has pleaded not guilty.
