Ex-NFL cheerleader sentenced for rape
Friday August 21st, 2015

Former Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck was sentenced Friday to 48 weekends in a Delaware detention center for raping a minor, according to CBS Baltimore.

Shattuck, 48, engaged in sexual activities last Labor Day with a 15-year-old boy who attended the same school as her son.

Shattuck was arrested in November for third-degree rape, unlawful sexual contact and giving alcohol to minors after a school official learned about the encounter. She pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree rape in June, and faced a maximum sentence of 15 years.

“I was the adult, and I’m sorry,” Shattuck said before being sentenced Friday. “I never should have had the conversation with someone else’s son and I’m sorry ... I will spend the rest of my life making this right.”

Shattuck, who will register in Delaware as a Tier II sex offender, will now spend every other weekend in jail for the next two years. She will also pay $10,650 to the victim's family and have no contact with minors, other than her own three children. 

Shattuck, who was hired by the Ravens at 38, became the oldest cheerleader in NFL history in 2005.
