Last week was pretty busy for federal prosecutors in terrorism-related cases. I’ve attached four emails from DOJ, some of which in turn have underlying charging instruments attached, and all of which have press releases detailing the allegations or developments at issue. The first case involves an alleged plot to attack a military facility in Seattle. The second involves the sentencing of a woman who provided material support (financing) to Hezbollah. The third involves the murder of U.S. Air Force personnel in Germany. The fourth involves the conviction of three FARC members in relation to the kidnapping of a U.S. citizen.
