imageEd Wall wants his day in court.

The former board chair of MARTA, busted in March 2007 on charges of having sex in a restroom stall at the Atlanta airport, has requested a jury trial. He was due in a Clayton County court on Monday but is now set to be arraigned March 24.

His partner in the alleged potty hookup, Michael Reid Pettry, pleaded no contest last week. He was sentenced to 12 months of probation, a $500 fine and 64 hours of community service.

The case has already been costly for Wall, whose longtime financial work with Clayton County was terminated in January. After his arrest, Wall resigned his MARTA chair but remains on the board.
