Amber Heard is still dealing with some legal issues. These issues are actually linked to the famous actress’s gesture of taking her and her husband’s dogs to Australia. It has now been revealed that Amber is not willing to plead guilty to the charges of illegally taking the two Yorkshire terriers into this country. The case dates back to earlier this year.
Well, Amber has recently stated that she is determined to fight the charges, as it seems that the star is absolutely sure that she has done nothing wrong. The case is set to undergo a five-day trial that will take place on Gold Coast, Queensland, in 2016.
“There has been no necessity for me to attend court to date despite my willingness to do so. Whilst I am unable to comment on the specific matters before the court I would like to say that I respect the importance of Australia’s laws,” a statement from the famous actress indicated. “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,” the same statement added.
Without a doubt, it seems that Amber is determined to appear in court on this case, saying that she is looking forward to attend the hearing that is set to take place. Amber’s famous husband, Johnny Depp might also be required to make a presence in court on this matter. However, this has not been officially confirmed for now.
Furthermore, the date of the hearing has not been communicated yet. The only thing that is certain is that Amber and her lawyers have decided that the famous actor will not plead guilty. Allegedly, she instructed her lawyers to enter not guilty pleas. The charges were formulated against Amber for the first time back in July. The star was charged with two counts of smuggling their two dogs into Australia and one count of producing a false document. In case Amber will be found guilty, she could actually face up to 10 years in prison.
