Non-Federal ISIS Prosecutions in the United States

In addition to the cases in the Federal Dataset, several ISIS-linked cases have been brought in various state courts rather than federal courts, including some that involve fatal attacks. Due to the small sample size and the wide variations in applicable state legal standards, state cases are not included in the Federal Dataset.
