“Zombieland” performer Amber Heard has declared that she’ll be fighting the charges of illegally smuggling her and husband Johnny Depp’s Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, into Australia earlier this season.
Depp neglected to file the appropriate paperwork for his two dogs, thus breaking the rules of the Quarantine Act 1908 in Australia.
Now, she is likely to resist with both counts against her and avoid the 10 years in prison and substantial fines that face her if condemned, reported E!Online.
“My decision to defend these charges, as will become apparent in the appropriate forum of the Court, is not intended to in any way diminish the importance of Australia’s laws,” she said in the statement.
Although she hasn’t appeared in court for any of the proceeding yet, Heard, 29, included that she is “looking ahead” to challenging her alleged offenses. The case was adjourned until December 15.
