Milan Kohout, originally from the Czech Republic and now living in Boston, was arrested back in November when he tried selling nooses to the public outside of the Bank of America headquarters. Though Kohout believed he was simply making an artistic statement on the sub-prime mortgage crisis, police thought otherwise.
Kohout tried to clarify his intentions, saying, "To me, the noose is the symbol of suicide. The banking industry makes millions of people incredibly miserable. I was making the comment that their cynicism was so deep that they could include a noose as part of their loan package."
Kohout has a pretrial hearing today and fears that what he considered only to be performance art may land him in prison.
