Golden Globe winning actor Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in an Australian prison because of his two dogs.

People Magazine is reporting that an Australian Senate Committee was told that, if guilty, Depp could face prison time or pay a fine up to $265,000. Depp had previously been given a choice: remove the dogs from the country or the authorities were "going to have to euthanize them."

Depp complied with the request, and sent the dogs home.

Australian law states that dogs need to be quarantined 10 days before they're allowed to enter the country, according to People.

Depp is in Australia filming the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth of the Caribbean film franchise.
