Amber Heard is reacting to reports that the actress is being investigated for perjury by the Los Angeles Police Department in connection to her alleged abuse case against ex-husband Johnny Depp.
On Friday (May 28), the 35-year-old actress was granted a motion to dismiss the 57-year-old actor’s defamation case against her for the third time by a Virginia judge. However, it was then reported that if she is found to have committed perjury during the court case, she would face legal repercussions in the form of sanctions or fines.
It was then reported that Amber was being investigated for allegedly staging injuries and a crime scene in connection to a May 21, 2016 incident that took place at the house Amber and Johnny shared in Los Angeles.
One of Amber‘s attorneys then reacted to the reports that Amber could face a maximum jail sentence of four years if she did perjury during the court case.

“The statute of limitations for perjury in California is three years and has long since expired, so an investigation, much less charges, much less a conviction, much less jail time, are impossibilities,” one of Amber‘s lawyers, Elaine Bredehoft, argued in court, Radar Online reports.
She also claimed that the LAPD has “repeatedly denied there’s any investigation of Amber Heard,” adding that the department “does not even investigate perjury ever.”
A rep for the LAPD backed Elaine‘s claims, saying that they have never heard of the department investigating a perjury in the case.
Elaine also accused Johnny‘s lawyer, Adam Waldman, of “trying to stir up the press and prejudice a future jury.”
Earlier this month, Johnny filed a lawsuit again the American Civil Liberties Union, wanting proof that Amber actually donated her $7 million divorce to charity, which she said that would do.
Johnny is claiming that Amber also donated a small amount of that money to charity.
