American tourist potentially facing jail time in Turks and Caicos for possession of ammunition finds solace in spending quality FaceTime with his children from back home

An American tourist from Oklahoma is facing over a decade in prison in the Turks and Caicos Islands after ammunition was found in his luggage. Despite being out on bail, he cannot leave the country and faces a potential 12-year sentence. Tourists in the region are not allowed to possess guns or ammunition, with a recent court order mandating prison time instead of fines for the offense. The tourist expressed deep remorse for his mistake and hopes for consideration due to lack of intent. Similar cases involving Americans have been reported in recent months, highlighting the need for resolution and U.S. State Department involvement.
