Molly Shattuck, the former Baltimore socialite and Ravens cheerleader who pleaded guilty in June to fourth-degree rape after an incident involving a 15-year-old boy, was sentenced to 48 weekends in jail on Friday afternoon in Delaware. The 48-year-old woman will spend every other weekend in jail over the next two years and be required to register as a sex offender in Delaware for the next 25 years, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Shattuck, who gained fame as the NFL’s oldest cheerleader at age 38, was arrested in November and charged with rape and unlawful sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy who was a classmate of her son at the McDonogh School in suburban Baltimore. The incident took place at a rented beach house in Bethany Beach, Del.
She faced up to 15 years in prison but received a lesser sentence after agreeing to plead guilty to fourth-degree rape, a Class C felony in Maryland.
The Reliable Source detailed Shattuck’s fall from grace in June, when she pleaded guilty:
Shattuck’s arrest rocked Baltimore elite circles in which the diminutive socialite had cut an outsized figure. She was married to prominent Baltimore businessman Mayo A. Shattuck, and their children (along with her victim) attended the posh McDonogh School. She was heavily involved in several charities and in 2005 entered the annals of Ravens cheerleading history as the oldest squad member at age 38. Shattuck even appeared in the first season of the ABC reality show “Secret Millionaire.”
But since her headline-grabbing arrest, Shattuck, once known for courting the spotlight, has maintained a minuscule public profile. Her divorce was finalized two days before she turned herself in, the charity boards that praised her enthusiasm and commitment distanced themselves, the Web site poised to become her Goop-like lifestyle hub is blank.
“Shattuck, 48, apologized and appeared to sob during her testimony in court Friday before the victim’s parents, who said it has been an agonizing situation for their family,” the Sun reports.
