ABSECON — A school official already facing legal troubles has another court date after parking in a handicapped spot at Home Depot.

La’Quetta Small, the superintendent of Atlantic City schools, was caught making the faux pas in late May. She's also the wife of Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small.

Video posted to Facebook by former AC council candidate John Exadaktilos showed Small's Chevy Tahoe double parked in a handicapped space at the Absecon Home Depot. Exadaktilos said he called the police.

Small was later sent a ticket, NJ.com reported. She has a court date set for July 15.

School official used mother's handicapped placard

Police bodycam footage obtained by BreakingAC showed two police officers responding to the parking lot to speak with Small.

The superintendent said to the cops that she was using her mother's handicapped placard. However, Small's mother was not with her.

According to state law, the placard holder must be with the driver for the vehicle to be parked in a handicapped spot.

School official charged with child abuse

Small and her husband, the mayor, were both charged with second-degree child endangerment in mid-April.

Prosecutors said the couple's 16-year-old daughter reported being physically and emotionally abused to a school official.

Officials said one beating left the girl unconscious.

Both Smalls have denied the accusations.

NJ towns with the highest STD rates in 2022

These towns had the highest rate of sexually transmitted infections per every 1,000 residents. The data was compiled by the state Department of Health for the year 2022, the most recent year for which statistics were available in February 2022. For some diseases, a zero appears because the state suppressed the data because it failed to meet a particular standard.
