US v. Al Timimi, Ali
Alexandria, VA

Taliban; Lashkar-e-Taiba

[EDVA] Ali Al Timimi was the spiritual leader of the "Virginia Paintball Jihad" network. In April 2005, he was convicted of inciting terrorist activity and sentenced to life in prison. A judge ordered Al Timimi to be released from custody in August 2020 while he pursues his appeal in part because he is susceptible to the coronavirus and in part because of a recent Supreme Court case that could invalidate several counts on which he was originally convicted.
