Ex-Ravens cheerleader sentenced to 48 weekends in jail for rape of minor – CBSSports.com
A Delaware judge on Friday ordered Molly Shattuck, an ex-Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, to serve every other weekend in jail for the next two years.
Shattuck was facing up to 15 years in prison after she pled guilty to one count of fourth degree rape back in June. Just over a year prior, Shattuck began a physical relationship with a 15-year old boy (reportedly a classmate of her son) she met over Instagram. She was ordered to pay the victim’s family $10,500 as well.
Shattuck had been facing a total of nine charges — including two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact in the second degree and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor — but those charges were settled as part of her plea deal.
The third degree rape charges alone carried a potential sentence of 25 years in prison.
Under the plea agreement, Shattuck must register as a sex offender, can’t contact the victim and isn’t allowed to communicate with any minors, other than her own children. According to the Baltimore Sun, Shattuck must also undergo a mental health evaluation.
“I will spend the rest of my life making this right,” Shattuck said. According to WBAL-TV, the victim’s parents asked the judge for incarceration, saying the impact on their son has been “devastating” and called Shattuck a rapist.
