Supreme Court rejects appeal from former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer

The Supreme Court rejected former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer's appeal of his criminal conviction in connection to a scheme to defraud a Native American tribe. 

Archer was convicted in 2018 and sentenced to just over a year in prison in 2022 for defrauding a Native American tribe of $60 million in bonds. The Supreme Court refused to hear Archer's appeal challenging his sentence on Monday.

Archer is out on bail, and the court's rejection of his appeal means his conviction and sentence will remain in place, which brings him closer to serving time in prison.

Hunter Biden, who served on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma alongside Archer, was not implicated in the scheme. 

Archer has denied that he intended to defraud anyone and claimed that prosecutors have relied on circumstantial evidence.
