* This is the number of no-DAPL 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) and as appeals are filed. There may be several charges involved in any one case and some people may have more than one case.

** Two guilty convictions are on appeal to the ND Supreme Court (and therefore are not counted as concluded).
