Amber Heard's dog days are over.
The Magic Mike XXL actress pleaded guilty Monday to providing a false immigration document when she entered Australia last year with her pet Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo. Heard, who appeared in court alongside Johnny Depp, avoided a possible 10-year prison sentence and a fine of nearly $100,000. Magistrate Margaret Callaghan gave Heard a one-month $1,000 good behavior bond, meaning she can't commit any other offenses in the country through May 18.
The yearlong saga has been dubbed Australia's "War on Terrier."
Heard's lawyer told the court that his client never meant to lie on her incoming passenger card by failing to declare she had animals with her. Heard was jetlagged and assumed her assistants had sorted out the paperwork, he said. "She has made a tired, terrible mistake," he added. But prosecutor Peter Callaghan said that was no excuse. "The laws apply to everyone," he argued.
In a video released Monday, Heard, 29, and Depp, 52, took turns reading a prepared statement that was submitted to the Queensland court. According to Magistrate Callaghan, the Australian Department of Agriculture "will get more deterrence value from the video than any conviction." Sitting in an undisclosed office setting, the actress looked directly into the camera and said, "Australia is a wonderful island, with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people."
A stone-faced Depp added, "It has to be protected."
"Australia is free of many pests and diseases that are commonplace around the world," Heard said. "That is why Australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws." Still unmoved, Depp said, "Australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. When you disrespect Australia law, they will tell you firmly."
"I am truly sorry that Pistol and Boo were not declared," Heard reiterated. "Protecting Australia is important." Depp ended the 42-second PSA by reminding people to "declare everything when you enter Australia. Thanks."
Twitter users mocked the video soon after its release:
