Robbing Banks in the Name of Art

MIT Professor Pleads Guilty to Robbing Banks in the Name of Art and Gets a Year in Prison.

Gibbons was arrested in January for a heist staged on December 31 at a Capital One bank in New York's Chinatown. According to court documents, he made his demands for cash in the form of a polite note asking the teller for a donation for his church, and then took $1,000.
