Amber Heard May Face Jail Time if Found Guilty of Faking Evidence of Abuse by Johnny Depp

Amber Heard May Face Jail Time if Found Guilty of Faking Evidence of Abuse by Johnny Depp. After a very public divorce and allegations of domestic abuse, Amber Heard may now be facing imprisonment for falsely accusing then-husband, Johnny Depp, of physical and mental abuse while providing “evidence” that turned out to be manufactured to gain sympathy and to ruin Depp’s career after the divorce.

Heard and Depp’s marriage was marred with public and private fighting and many fans became concerned when Amber initially claimed she had evidence against Johnny regarding bruises left from altercations through out their marriage that have been debunked by those who were close to the actress at the time of the accusations.

Heard’s own stylist, Samantha McMillen, wrote statements regarding that they were close enough to Amber during the alleged times Heard claimed she had bruises and other signs of abuse and claim she in fact did not have any signs of physical abuse during their interactions.

“Throughout the day of December 16, 2015, I could see clearly that Amber Heard did not have any visible marks, bruises, cuts, or injuries to her face or any other part of her bod,” McMillen said in her statement.

The accusations alone were enough to get Depp fired from his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the PotC reboot of the franchise was set to continue without Depp tied to the project. Currently, it is still rumored that Disney is looking to bring Depp back on board the Pirates of the Caribbean project, but the quick abandonment without real evidence has not gone unnoticed by fans.

If proven guilty, Amber Heard could be facing 3-years imprisonment. Wallin & Klarich Law Firm shared, the California Penal Code Section 141 PC stated that it is illegal to alter, modify, plant, place, conceal, manufacture or move any physical matter with the intention of causing someone to be charged with a crime. Some would face felony charges for this.

Related charges include Offering false evidence under California Penal Code 132 PC and Preparing false evidence under California Penal Code Section 134 PC which are considered felony crimes and carry a maximum sentence of up to three years. This applies even if the person doesn’t actually present it but intend to present the falsified evidence as true.

Johnny Depp is also within his right to “plead allegations of an implied defamatory” against the Aquaman star even if the latter did not mention his name in her op-ed for Washington Post according to Judge Bruce D. White. It is currently unknown if Depp will proceed with these charges of implied defamation.
