Australian court hearing over Johnny Depp’s dogs adjourned

SYDNEY (AP) — A court hearing dealing with allegations that Johnny Depp’s wife, Amber Heard, illegally brought the couple’s dogs to Australia has been adjourned until November.

Heard was charged in July with two counts of illegally importing Pistol and Boo into Australia and one count of producing a false document. She could face up to 10 years in prison and heavy fines if convicted.

She did not appear at the Southport Magistrates Court in Queensland state on Monday. The case was adjourned until Nov. 2.

Australia has strict quarantine regulations to prevent diseases such as rabies from spreading to its shores. Bringing pets into the country involves applying for a permit and quarantine on arrival of at least 10 days.
