The family of a Georgia college student says she's facing four months in a Cayman Islands prison for breaking COVID-19 protocols.

Skylar Mack is an 18-year-old pre-med major at Mercer University.

Her grandmother says she visited the Cayman Islands last month and was supposed to isolate for two weeks.

Instead, she attended her boyfriend's jet ski competition a few days later.

Attendees reported Mack and she was arrested.

She initially faced community service and a fine.

But, according to a local newspaper, a prosecutor appealed and pushed for a stricter sentence.
