An Adelaide woman has been found guilty of membership of the Islamic State terror group in South Australia's first terrorism trial. The court also heard she had been in communication with three young women and knew about their deadly terror attack on a police station in Kenya before it occurred.

Kelly's conviction was overturned in 2003. Statistics likely understate the actual problem of wrongful convictions because once an execution has occurred there is often insufficient motivation and finance to keep a case open, and it becomes unlikely at that point that the miscarriage of justice

A former Adelaide student who was found guilty of being a member of Islamic State (IS) has had her conviction overturned on appeal.

Zainab Abdirahman-Khalif was convicted at trial of knowingly being a member of IS, which the Court of Criminal Appeal today overturned.

Ms Abdirahman-Khalif, who is now 24, was detained at Adelaide Airport in July 2016 trying to board a plane to Turkey with just hand luggage and $180, but released without charge.

In May 2017, she was again arrested and charged by Australian Federal Police with "knowingly being a member of a terrorist organisation".

During a three-week trial last year, the South Australian Supreme Court heard the former student had pledged allegiance to IS and had been communicating online with young female members of the terrorist organisation.

Justice David Peek jailed her for three years and imposed a non-parole period of two years and three months, but Ms Abdirahman-Khalif appealed that decision.

More to come.
