Former Ravens cheerleader sentenced to weekends in jail for rape

GEORGETOWN, Del. — Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck will spend 48 weekends in jail for the rape of a 15-year-old boy at a vacation rental home in Bethany Beach, Delaware.

The judge gave Shattuck, 48, a suspended 15-year prison sentence and two years of probation Friday morning.

She will spend every other weekend in a probation center and will have to register as a sex offender in Delaware, The Baltimore Sun reports. She will be on the sex offender registry for 25 years.

Shattuck entered the plea on charges of fourth-degree rape just days before her scheduled trial on two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to minors. Other charges were dropped as part of the deal.

She collapsed to her knees after she was sentenced Friday morning and wept as she apologized, The Associated Press reports.

The victim was a classmate of one of Shattuck’s children at the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland.

The teen’s parents said Shattuck stole their son’s innocence and urged the judge to send her to prison to send a message to potential pedophiles.

Shattuck is the former wife of Mayo A. Shattuck, former CEO of Constellation Energy, the parent company of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. She also had the distinction of being the oldest cheerleader in NFL history.
