A magic wand isn't getting Emma Watson out of this one.

The 24-year-old actress is under investigation for allegedly bringing her American housekeeper to work in London without proper documentation, according to The Independent. The report alleges that the maid worked for Watson from September 2013 to February 2014, despite carrying only a tourist visa, which does not permit non-citizens to work in the U.K.

If found guilty, Watson could face a £10,000 (approximately $17,000) civil penalty.
