Johnny Depp Facing 10 Years in Prison


Johnny Depp 'could face up to 10 YEARS in jail after bringing two dogs into Australia.'

The star could be in a lot of trouble after allegedly bringing his Yorkshire terriers into the country and breaking quarantine laws
Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in prison after illegally bringing his two dogs to Australia. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor - who is currently filming the latest instalment of the swashbuckling franchise - has been caught up in controversy after breaking the country's quarantine laws.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, government officials have said he could face up to a decade in jail or a maximum fine of $340,000.
Under Australian law, dogs must be kept under quarantine for at least 10 days after arrival to protect against the spread of disease.
The comments came as a Senate committee hearing in Caberra discussed the high-profile case which saw Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce threaten to have the two dogs - Boo and Pistol - put down.
Depp became embroiled in an customs furore when it emerged he entered the country by private jet and failed to declare to customs officers his beloved Yorkshire terriers were on board.
Minister Barnaby Joyce said the animals' destiny was uncertain and admitted it was uncertain whether US biosecurity officers would permit them to return to the country.
But it became clear that the animals had been spared this afternoon when Joyce tweeted: "Dogs gone."
