    Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in prison for secretly bringing his two Yorkshire terriers into Australia, authorities stated Tuesday.

    The actor was accused of sneaking the dogs, Pistol and Boo, into the country on his private jet without declaring them or putting them in the required 10-day quarantine period upon arriving Down Under, where he's been filming the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie.

    On Monday, a senate committee was told if the case goes to court, Depp could face up to a decade in prison or a maximum fine of 340,000 Australian dollars (about $263,296), the Guardian reports. The pilot could also face up to two years behind bars for his role in the situation.

    Officials, the report added, have referred to the case as "very serious."

    The controversy erupted earlier this month when reports surfaced on social media that a handler had taken the terriers to a dog groomer, alerting the potential breach to authorities. Australian quarantine authorities ordered Depp, 51, and his 29-year-old wife, Amber Heard, to fly the dogs out of the country (which he did) or they would be put down.

    "If you start letting movie stars -- even though they've been the 'Sexiest Man Alive' twice -- come into our nation (with pets), then why don't we just break laws for everybody?" Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said.

    The filming of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" was disrupted in March when Depp, who plays the pirate captain Jack Sparrow, cut his hand on a glass door. He brought the dogs on his return flight from the U.S., where he underwent surgery to his hand.

    I hate when the press reports the maximum penalty as if someone is actually facing that. We always hear someone faces a lot of time in prison but in the end they get a fine.

    He's as likely to go to jail as Lindsay Lohan is.

    1. What are the odds he does anything but pay a small fine?

    2. He wouldn't do well in prison.

    Keep in mind transporting animals accross continents has the potential for mass animal deaths to a disease for which there are no natural immunities in local animals. It's not simplly failing to fill out a form.

    Ask the native Americans how that works out.

    Imagine, of all the celebrities who've skated on far more egregious charges than those that Johnny are accused of, he's the one to get hooked and booked and do 10 years hard time in the joint. I know it'll never happen as Johnny does have the means to make it all go away.

    Not going to jail because he is so wealthy they will give him a large fine instead
    Much more profitable for australia.

    Oooohh....the power of the pussy-fog!

    Does anyone think this would happen to Russell Crowe or Hugh Jackman or Mel Gibson in the same way?

    I'll take the 10 years if it gives Depp the time to finally pick a decent script. Prison could be the only thing to keep him away from Tim Burton and Jerry Bruckheimer/Gore Verbinski for 10 years.

    Isn't the mutt that gold-digging, homewrecking cunt Amber Heard's dog? WTF is Depp getting heat when it's Heard's stupid dog??
