SYDNEY — Actor Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years behind bars for bringing his two dogs into Australia illegally, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

Depp flew Pistol and Boo back to the United States within the time period designated by Australia’s Minister of Agriculture.

Australia’s agricultural minister, Barnaby Joyce, threatened to have the dogs put to sleep if Depp didn’t comply within 50 hours.

Government officials still haven’t forgotten the incident and now Depp could face 10 years in prison or a maximum fine of $263,224 if the matter goes to court, according to Mashable.
