Imran Rabbani was a friend of Munther Omar Saleh, who told an FBI informant he was "trying to do an op" for ISIS. The FBI had been following Saleh and Rabbani. The pair were arrested when they charged at an FBI surveillance van. At the time of his arrest, Rabbani was 17 years old. Rabbani agreed to a plea deal in exchange for dropping his appeal of a ruling that allowed him to be tried as an adult. In a letter to the judge, Rabbani wrote of Saleh: "This person would lavish hate with so called 'reason' and present it as such. I knew it was wrong then, and I am adamant of its absurdity now."
