Ed Wall’s potty problems are over — sort of

imageEd Wall’s release was, well, a little premature.

The smooth-talking investment banker and former MARTA board chair was charged with having sex with another man in a restroom stall at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport two years ago. Last month, he pleaded no contest — short-circuiting a trial — and a Clayton County judge promptly slapped him with 12 months of probation, a $500 fine and 64 hours of community service.

But a judge this week signed an order releasing Wall of his probation early, agreeing that he met the other terms of his probation, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Wall and the judge say the order, and the state’s first offender statute, mean he will nor carry a criminal conviction. The Clayton solicitor says otherwise: “It just means he is off of probation. He still has a record per se.”
