Amber Heard could potentially face jail time if evidence proves that she was lying under oath during her defamation trial against Johnny Depp.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued Heard after she penned an op-ed in The Washington Post descrbing herself as a victim of domestic abuse. The article did not mention Depp by name but the 58-year-old argued that his career has been negatively impacted because of these allegations.

Defamation lawyer, Aaron Minc, told Joe that:
“I think that, as this case goes on, and we start seeing more and more objective evidence that she is lying about things under oath, that’s when it starts crossing the line into the possibility that she is fabricating evidence, fabricating photos, fabricating bruises, altering evidence and then submitting it,”
Bryan Neumeister, a digital forensic expert, was asked about the authenticity of the photos submitted by Heard showing bruises on the 36-year-old’s face. He said:
“I’m just stating the fact that photographs were modified.” “[there are] many versions of this photo… dozens of different versions, some with different file sizes, different physical sizes, and some had been through photo-editing software programmes.”
“All three of these photos had to go through some type of transformation to change sizes.”

When asked if there was a possibility of Heard facing jail time, Minc said on the stand, that “A few days ago, I would have told you to zero, or less than 1% [chance]” but as the trial comes to a conclusion, his opinion changed.
Minc stated that people lie “all the time” during civil cases, but creating “elaborate hoaxes” about serious criminal allegations is another matter. He added:
“I would hope that prosecutors would take a close look at it because if there is very clear evidence that she did that, that should certainly be considered,”
“If it was proven that that was the case, and there’s certainly some questions being raised in the trial currently, that could potentially lead to a criminal prosecution and jail time,”
We are expecting a verdict from the jury soon.
