* This is the number of NoDAPL North Dakota state criminal cases that have a separate case number. It may change over time if cases are dismissed due to lack of evidence and then re-charged (with new charges and case numbers). There may be several charges involved in any one case and some people may have more than one case.

** One conviction is on appeal to the ND Supreme Court (and therefore is not counted as concluded).
