PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Ammon Bundy says he has switched his courtroom attire from a suit to jail scrubs to show that he's a political prisoner.

After wearing a suit jacket for the first two days of his trial, Bundy on Thursday wore scrubs during his trial on charges related to the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.

In a statement read by one of his attorneys, Bundy said he wants to drop the facade he is presumed innocent, and dress like the political prisoner he is.

Bundy's clothing was an issue before trial, when he was not allowed to wear cowboy boots.

His brother and co-defendant, Ryan Bundy, wore a suit jacket Thursday, but told the judge he supported Ammon's decision.

The brothers and five co-defendants are charged with conspiring to prevent federal employees from doing their jobs.
