Ravens cheerleader pleads guilty to charge that she raped 15-year-old last year

Former Ravens Cheerleader Pleads Guilty To Rape: Her Downfall From Socialite To Sex Offender

What allegedly began as a flirtation on Instagram has culminated in a guilty plea for a former Ravens cheerleader, accused of performing oral sex on a 15-year-old boy.

She met him through her son, who both attended school together at the ritzy McDonogh School.

The life of Molly Shattuck, once a high-profile socialite in Baltimore, has unraveled dramatically since the alleged incident, the Washington Post reported. And now, she faces up to 15 years in jail when she is sentenced in August.

The Ravens cheerleader pleaded guilty to fourth-degree rape, but the other charges she faced when indicted last November have been tossed. These included two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact, and three of providing alcohol to a minor, the Baltimore Sun reported.

The charge to which she’s pleaded guilty alleges that the Ravens cheerleader began a dalliance with the boy in Maryland around May 2014; by Labor Day weekend, she performed oral sex on him at a vacation home in Bethany Beach, Delaware, the Associated Press reported. Molly is 48.

That vacation home was the same one she’d rented for her family the previous year, WBAL added.

“This is obviously a very difficult time. Therefore we ask you respect the privacy of all involved. It would not be appropriate for me to make any further comments at that time,” her lawyer, Michell Lipkowitz, said.

Lipkowitz hopes to keep her out of jail, and will argue that she’s a first time offender. Her guilty plea has spared her victim from having to testify.

As part of her guilty plea, Shattuck is required to register as a sex offender, can’t have any contact with her victim or other children (excluding her three kids), and must commit to a mental health evaluation with sexual disorder counseling.

Since the charges came to light, much of the former Ravens cheerleader’s life has fallen apart. Her divorce from husband and former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo A. Shattuck was finalized two days before she turned herself in last year.

She had established herself as a fitness and healthy living guru, became the oldest cheerleader for the Ravens (the oldest in the NFL) in 2005, appeared on the TV show Secret Millionaire, and was involved in a number of charities.

Since her arrest and indictment, she’s kept a very low profile and said not a word to reporters outside court. Now divorced, her charities have abandoned her, and her apparent efforts to create an online franchise have disintegrated, the Post reported.
