Atlantic City mayor, school admin wife, charged with abuse of 16-year-old daughter

Charging documents said that the 16-year-old was beaten unconscious with a broom, punched in the mouth, and given threats of an "earth slam" down the stairs.


The mayor of Atlantic City, New Jersey and his wife, who is the superintendent at Atlantic City Public School System, have been charged with beating and abusing their 16-year-old daughter. The charges come just weeks after a press conference when they denied they beat her so badly that she miscarried.  

The 50-year-old Democrat Mayor Marty Small Sr. and his wife La'Quetta Small have been accused of abusing their 16-year-old daughter, per the Daily Mail. They allegedly beat their daughter several times because she would not stop seeing a boyfriend that she was dating. The parents are charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child and the mayor is also charged with third-degree terroristic threats as well as third-degree aggravated assault.  

School principal Constance Days-Chapman, who is close to La'Quetta Small, is also facing charges of failing to notify authorities of the abuse.  

The abuse was reportedly carried out from December 2023 to January 2024. Documents in the case alleged that the 16-year-old was beaten unconscious with a broom, punched in the mouth, and given threats of an "earth slam" down the stairs. 

Just weeks before the charges, Small held a press conference about the police raiding his house when he told the press that his daughter was not pregnant with twins from a drug dealer and that he was innocent in the matter. He denied the claim that his daughter "was pregnant with twins, and I beat the sh*t out of her so bad that I killed the babies, and I'm gonna be charged with double murder." 

He denied any claims that he abused his daughter in any way and said that the claims were motivated by "political and racial" scheming.  

"We don't have City of Atlantic City money in our house. I didn't steal anything," he told the press. "No, we don't have drugs in our house. And we don't have guns." 

He also denied that his daughter got "knocked up by a drug dealer in Stanley Homes village" and labeled it "false." 

Small's daughter did not speak at the press conference; however, it was opened by a religious leader who quoted Martin Luther King Jr.
