American tourists sentenced to 12 years in Turks and Caicos prison for ammunition charges

An Oklahoma couple had their vacation in Turks and Caicos turn into a nightmare when Ryan Watson was detained at the airport for having ammunition in his carry-on luggage, facing up to 12 years in prison despite it being accidental. His wife, Valerie Watson, returned home while he remains in Turks and Caicos. The island has strict laws with a minimum of 12 years in prison for bringing ammunition. Other Americans have also faced similar charges on the island, leading to a warning from the U.S. government for tourists. A GoFundMe has been set up to help the Watson family with expenses.
