There is some confusion regarding exactly where does the process of prosecuting Marty Small and La’Quetta Small stand?

This past June 17, 2024, there was a pre-indictment conference scheduled for Marty and La’Quetta Small.

We can confirm that this conference did not take place. The only reason to hold the pre-indictment conference is if the two sides can strike an agreement.

In the case of Small and Small, there is no agreement possible at this time. Both sides (The Smalls and Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office) will not accept what the other side wants.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor, Will Reynolds displayed professionalism and courtesy to the sitting Mayor of Atlantic City and the sitting Atlantic City Superintendent of Public Schools.

Reynolds could have “perp-walked” them back on April 15, 2024. He did not. Reynolds direct charged them by summons.

MARTY SMALL is criminally charged with:

  • 2nd degree endangering the welfare of a child.
  • 3rd degree aggravated assault
  • 3rd degree terroristic threats
  • disorderly persons simple assault.

LA'QUETTA SMALL is criminally charged with:

  • 2nd degree endangering the welfare of a child.
  • 3 separate counts of disorderly persons simple assault.

The next move will be trying to obtain a grand jury indictment, however, that remains unknown at this time as a pending indictment date is not presently scheduled.

Both Marty and La’Quetta Small have continued to work in their respective positions … pretending like nothing has happened.

La’Quetta Small remaining as Superintendent of the Atlantic City Public Schools is particularly disturbing … because it is unprecedented for a school official to remain in the position while facing serious child abuse charges.

By comparison, Constance Days-Chapman, Principal  of the Atlantic City High School was immediately suspended (with pay of course) following serious criminal charges filed against her in a related matter as follows:

Constance Days-Chapman has been criminally charged with:

  • second-degree Official Misconduct
  • third-degree Hindering Apprehension of
  • Another.
  • fourth-degree Obstruction of Justice.
  • disorderly persons Failure to Report Child Abuse.

Days-Chapman failed to report allegations of child abused to the New Jersey Department of Child Protective Services.

Days-Chapman was Marty Smalls campaign manager for Mayor of Atlantic City.

Days-Chapman was hand-picked by Marty and La’Quetta Small to be Atlantic City High School Principal.

The Atlantic City Board of Education vote to hire Days-Chapman failed two years ago. However, the state of New Jersey overruled the Board and hired Days-Chapman.
