Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader charged with rape of minor
Delaware police said Wednesday that Molly Shattuck, a former cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens, was arrested and charged with rape and unlawful sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy, according to The Baltimore Sun.
The Associated Press reports that Shattuck was released on a $84,000 bond after pleading not guilty to the charges at an arraignment on Wednesday. She had been indicted on Monday.
According to police, Shattuck developed a relationship with the boy in Maryland and eventually invited him to a vacation rental in Delaware over Labor Day weekend, where she bought him liquor and engaged in a sexual encounter with him.
Court affidavits reviewed by WBAL say that Shattuck had several meetings with the boy this summer, though it's unclear if they were of a sexual nature.
Delaware authorities said Baltimore County Police contacted them on Sept. 26 to report that the 15-year-old had said he had an inappropriate relationship with a woman later identified as Shattuck.
Delaware State Police searched Shattuck's Roland Park home on Oct. 1, seizing items they identified as "pertinent to the investigation." They would not reveal what was taken.
Shattuck, 47, became the oldest woman to be an NFL cheerleader in 2005 with the Ravens. She was formerly married to Mayo A. Shattuck III, the former CEO of Baltimore energy company Constellation Energy Group and current executive chairman of Exelon.
The couple separated in March.
