What makes an adult become predatory towards a teenager? That’s clearly what happened in the case of Molly Shattuck, a former NFL cheerleader who just plead guilty to the rape of a 15-year-old boy.
The former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader who was arrested after having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy pleaded guilty to one charge of rape in a Delaware court today.
Molly Shattuck, 48, entered the plea before a Delaware judge Tuesday afternoon, days before her trial was to begin, and was held up by two friends as she left the courthouse.
Shattuck was indicted last year on two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to minors, initially pleading not guilty to the charges.
She will be forced to register as a sex offender according to The Baltimore Sun.
She faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and will be sentenced in August.
In November, Mayo Shattuck, the billionaire husband of the former cheerleader, was granted a divorce by a court in Baltimore County on the same day his wife was indicted by grand jury in Delaware.
The businessman was able to obtain a divorce faster than is normally possible in Maryland,11 News reported, as it typically takes at least three months for uncontested proceedings.
Shattuck had been separated from 60-year-old Mayo Shattuck III. The couple have three children – Spencer, 15, Lillian, 11, and Wyatt, eight.
Soon after she was indicted on these charges, she resigned from her job on the board of the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland.
She allegedly became involved with the teenage boy in May of last year when Shattuck posted a compliment on a photo of the teen on Instagram.
The victim replied with a private message of thanks, but Shattuck’s son then forwarded his mother’s cell phone number, saying: ‘You should text my Mom, she is obsessed with you,’ according to court records.
The pair first met a month later while the teen was visiting a friend in her neighborhood, reports DelawareOnline.
The meeting ended with a hug but no other physical contact between the 47-year-old and 15-year-old boy, court records said.
The pair started to meet for make-out sessions in Shattuck’s Cadillac Escalade. Court records revealed that a meeting at an AMC movie theater was followed by another in a school parking lot.
In July, Shattuck picked the teenager up from summer school ‘five or six times’ at lunchtime and they would ‘talk and eat and then get in the back of the car and kiss or make out’, police said.
It was during one of these incidents that Shattuck allegedly touched the teenager’s penis.
‘Between their encounters, Shattuck asked for pictures via text message’ and he would send pictures of himself shirtless and one in his underwear, the victim told police.
For Labor Day weekend Shattuck took her children and some of their friends – including the victim – to stay at a rented beach house in Bethany Beach.
‘Sometime around 2am on Sunday morning, they drove to a liquor store and (Molly) Shattuck purchased a 12-pack of Miller Lite and a 12-pack of Bud Light for them,’ state the court documents.
Once back at the house, Shattuck is alleged to have performed oral sex on the boy at least twice – first outside the home while walking the dog and then again in her bedroom.
The documents state ‘(the boy) described the undergarments (Molly) Shattuck was wearing when he entered her bedroom.’
Shattuck is alleged to told the boy ‘if he wanted to have sex she would. The boy opted out. He decided to leave. At that point, she told him to come back later but he did not go back.’
The next day the boy’s father collected him.
Shattuck is also alleged to have sent the teen pictures through Instagram of him taken at the beach over the Labor Day weekend.
On September 26, the boy’s family reported Shattuck to the police who executed a search warrant at her $2.5 million home on October 1.
The search warrant led investigators to seize her cell phone and her computer.
Two days later, Delaware State Police became involved due to the seriousness of the allegations.
On September 29, Molly Shattuck separately filed for divorce but whether she knew the investigation was underway is unclear.
… In 2005, Baltimore native Shattuck became the oldest NFL cheerleader in history up to that time when the Ravens selected her for the squad on her first tryout.
She cheered for two years and was a part-time coach for six more years.
The depths this woman went to in order to try to sink her claws into this boy is truly sickening, even seemingly using her son as a facilitator. Thank goodness that the boy at least wised up that something was wrong before the relationship went further than it already had, and had the sense to tell his parents what was going on — now, this predator can hopefully be put away where she can’t victimize any more children ever again.
