An Australian court has decided not to pursue perjury charges against actress Amber Heard. The charges were related to allegations that she lied about how her and her ex-husband Johnny Depp's dogs entered Australia in 2015.
The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions has decided not to charge Heard with perjury for allegedly lying in 2016 about being unaware of the country's strict animal quarantine regulations. Heard brought the dogs into the country while Depp was filming a movie.
Charges Dropped in Dog Importation Case
Amber Heard will not face prosecution for illegally importing her dogs into Australia, according to a statement from the department. The case against the actress, which accused her of perjury, has been dropped.
In 2015, actress Amber Heard was accused of breaking Australia's quarantine regulations by bringing her dogs to the country without declaring them. She had brought the two pups to her former husband Johnny Depp's movie set. The "Aquaman" star was charged with two counts of illegally importing the dogs and one count of producing a false document.
Guilty Plea and Sentencing
In 2016, actress Amber Heard pleaded guilty to providing a false immigration document when she failed to declare her dogs upon entering Australia. She was sentenced to a one-month good behavior bond, while the charges of illegally importing the dogs were dropped. Heard's lawyer claimed that she did not intend to lie and that she was jet lagged and assumed her assistants had taken care of the paperwork.
