High Profile Sex Charge Arrests
Tucked away in the Star's Metro & State section today is a report by Whitney Smith of two high profile individuals, one from Indianapolis and one from Atlanta, being arrested for having sex in a public restroom at Atlanta's airport. Nabbed in the arrest was Indianapolis' Michael Pettry, who is managing director of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, and Edmond J. Wall, who the chairman of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. The pair's attorneys deny the public indecency charge they received after an undercover officer claimed to witness the two having sex in a restaurant bathroom. This arrest contrasts with similar busts at parks and other public places here in Indiana where undercover cops are actually used as lures to entice would-be offenders into sex acts. In this case, the cop was a mere bystander reporting what he observed.
