UPDATE: Man Faced 13 Years in Prison For Protesting a Bank With Chalk

A man who used children's chalk to write "No Thanks Big Banks" and "Shame on Bank of America" on San Diego sidewalks outside of Bank of America branches is facing up to 13 years in prison and $13,000 in fines. Jeff Olson was also hit with a gag order in his trial, as the judge makes sure the proceedings are about vandalism and not free speech — despite outcry from San Diego's mayor.

UPDATE: Olson was aquitted Wednesday morning of the charges.
