Johnny Depp now facing ten years in prison for bringing his dogs into Australia. It’s the biggest crime he’s accused of since asking for eight bucks to see Mortdecai. That’s right people Captain Jack Sparrow may have finally found a prison that can hold him.
All of this stems from when he brought his two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, into Australia illegally without passing through quarantine earlier this month. The actor brought his dogs into the country on his private jet while filming the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. Once word got out the Australian Agriculture Minister threatened to kill Depp’s dogs and lock Depp up, since the Australia requires that all animals to have proper permits and go through a strict quarantine process in order to prevent incoming diseases.
The Australian senate committee stated that if the case ends up going to court, Depp could face up to 10 years in prison or the maximum fine of $263,000 in U.S. dollars. In addition, the planes pilot that helped smuggle the dogs into the country could also face up to two years in prison.
Hopefully, Johnny Depp will just go hide on his private island and drink a boatload of rum until it’s all gone or this blows over.
