Remember back when Johnny Depp's wife, Amber Heard, didn't declare bringing their two yorkshire terrier dogs into Australia and she got found out when she shared a photo of them at a grooming parlour. There were all sorts of claims being made including that the two dogs might get put down!

Well the case has now been heard in court.

Amber pleaded guilty to making a false statement on her immigration card about the couple's Yorkshire terriers. But the Queensland judge gave her a one-month good behaviour bond with no conviction recorded. If she breaks the bond she must pay A$1,000 ($770; £540). Two illegal importation charges against her were dropped earlier. These carried a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail or fines of up to A$265,000

Her guilty plea meant Mr Depp was excused from giving evidence to the court.

A video was also shown in court, and made public by the Department of Agriculture, in which the couple expressed remorse and advised travellers to respect Australian laws.
