Ex-Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader Sentenced To Weekends In Jail
48 weekends in prison - that was the call from Superior Court Judge E. Scott Bradley as he sentenced Molly Shattuck in a Sussex County courtroom Friday.
Disgraced ex- Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, Molly Shattuck rushed pass reporters this morning with her head down huddled in between a group of women.
Inside Shattuck faced the possibility of up to 15 years in jail after reaching a plea deal for a having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy at vacation home in Bethany Beach.
Shattuck's lawyer, Eugene Mauer told reporters, "She's remorseful. She's very concerned about the family of the victim."
In the courtroom attorney Mauer asked Judge Bradley for probation for his client saying, a husband, who walked out on Shattuck for a younger woman, was a leading factor in his client's sexually-charged relationship with the teen victim.
In a statement, Shattuck denied that assertion and took full responsibility for her actions.
"We all go through periods in our life when we are emotionally about one thing from another," said Mauer. "I think we may find ourselves doing something completely out of character."
A very emotional Shattuck tearfully apologized to the victim's family saying, she 'will spend the rest of her life making this right.'
"I should have never had a conversation with someone else's son," Shattuck blurted out through a storm of tears
The victim's mother later responding calling Shattuck a "criminal." She went on to say "she admits to being a rapist." And "any adult who rapes a child should be in jail."
Judge Bradley agreed -- sentencing Shattuck to 48 weekends in prison every other weekend for the next two years. She was also ordered to register as a tier two sex offender, pay more than $10,000 in restitution to the victim and his family, 35 hours of community service weekly and sexual disorder counseling.
"I think it was a well-constructed, wise and in some ways brilliant sentencing," said Mauer.
Shattuck will begin serving her sentence at the "VOP" here in Georgetown, her lawyer says, the first Friday of September.
