The controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's two pooches Pistol and Boo continues with a court case on Queensland's Gold Coast adjourned until November 2. The 52-year-old actor's wife Amber Heard, who was scheduled to face Southport Magistrates Court on Monday morning, did not appear before the court, news.com.au reports.
She is facing a possible 10-year prison sentence and a hefty fine for the charge of illegal importation and producing a false document. The famous couple made international headlines in May when they had allegedly smuggled their dogs into the country, while Depp filmed the latest instalment of the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise.
Agriculture minister Barnaby Joyce said at the time the two dogs that posed a bio-security risk as the US is not a rabies-free country needed to "bugger off home" or face being euthanised. Since Joyce gave the pups a 48-hour countdown to leave the country safely, the pooches departed on a private jet under the cover of night.
