Amber Heard pleads not guilty to illegally importing dogs into Australia and begs for speedy trial


Amber Heard could face up to ten years in prison if convicted of illegally importing her pets dogs into Australia, but despite the threat the actress has insisted she’s “looking forward” to fighting the case next year when it goes to trial.

The wife of Johnny Depp , 52, has been accused of violating the country’s biosecruity laws by bringing the couple’s dogs – Pistol and Boo – into the country by private jet in May.

Entering her not guilty plea against the charges at Southport Magistrates’ Court in Queensland on Monday, Heard said in a statement via her lawyers: “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.
