Emma Watson isn’t the first person who comes to mind when you think of celebrity criminals, but the Harry Potter star is currently under investigation and could face some legal penalties.
The 24-year-old recent graduate has come under fire after reports suggest she illegally employed an American housekeeper at her London home.
According to the Independent, British Immigration officials are investigating the situation as the housekeeper was working for Watson while holding a tourist visa, which does not permit work in the UK.

actress reportedly employed the housekeeper–who allegedly worked for her in New York, too–overseas from September 2013 through the beginning of February 2014. British Border Agency officials are said to have begun the investigation after receiving a complaint about the situation.
While she has yet to comment on the allegations, if Emma is charged, she could face up to $17,000 in fines.
