Bermuda's highest court has struck down the conviction of a Florida woman who accidentally brought the ammunition magazine from her gun to the British island territory.

The Supreme Court ruled there was no evidence that Lori DuBell intended to bring the gun magazine into Bermuda. The court issued an absolute discharge Friday meaning she will have no criminal record in the territory.

The real estate broker from Naples, Florida, pleaded guilty in September to illegally importing the magazine and served nine days in jail.

DuBell said Sunday she was glad the case is over and wasn't sure she would revisit Bermuda.

During a flight from Boston, she realized she had the magazine from her 9 mm Glock and emptied the bullets into a bathroom trash can.
