Atlantic City’s new mayor has a lengthy arrest record dating back more than 25 years. That’s according to NEW JERSEY GLOBE.
Mayor Marty Small, who took office earlier this month after Mayor Frank Gilliam resigned following his arrest on wire fraud charges, has never been convicted of a crime but has been charged or arrested at least 14 times since 1993.
Marty Small’s earliest arrests were for allegedly selling narcotics near an Atlantic City school.
In 1999, Marty Small was indicted on assault and disorderly person charges.
Those arrests, which totaled five criminal charges, all occurred before Small took office as an Atlantic City councilman, but the bulk of Small’s previous arrests came after he became an elected official.
He was indicted on numerous charges related to an alleged absentee ballot fraud scheme in 2006. Those charges, along with a 2005 perjury charge related to the purported scheme did not end in conviction.
