Johnny Depp's wife, Amber Heard, could face up to 10 years jail time and a $100,000 fine for bringing her dogs into Australia without following lawful importation regulations.
The couple and their canines hit headlines back in May when the illegal dogs were discovered, having been brought into the country via private jet so they could join Depp while he filmed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce warned that the dogs had better "bugger off home" before they were euthanized. Depp jokingly shot back at Joyce on Sunday, responding to a question about whether he took his dogs along for a gondola ride:
"I killed my dogs and ate them under direct orders from some kinda, I dunno, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia."
His wife, however, won't be able to get out of the sticky situation with witty quips alone. The Southport Magistrates Court in Queensland will hear her case on Monday, in which she faces two charges of illegal importation and one count of producing a false document.
Heard won't be at court herself, instructing her lawyers to seek an adjournment until a later date. To be continued...
