The wife of actor Johnny Depp wants a trial soon on charges that she illegally imported the couple’s dogs into Australia, according to media reports.
Amber 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 if convicted.
She did not appear at Southport Magistrates’ Court in Queensland state on Monday for the latest hearing.
A court official said the case was adjourned until next week.
The Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper said Heard’s lawyer had asked for the trial date to be brought forward from an available date in March.
