Back in November we brought you news of former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, Molly Shattuck, being indicted on two counts of third-degree rape for sexual acts performed with a 15-year-old boy she found and stalked via Instagram. Well, she’s back in the news, and things haven’t . TMZ is reporting that the former NFL cheerleader accepted a plea deal, and has pled guilty to performing sexual acts on a 15-year-old boy she found on Instagram.
If you don’t remember this story from this past November maybe this Molly Shattuck footage of her as a Ravens cheerleader will jog your memory:
An ex-NFL cheerleader has just pled guilty to raping a 15-year-old boy she spotted on Instagram … and now could face up to 15 years in prison.
As we previously reported, 48-year-old Molly Shattuck — who cheered for the Baltimore Ravens in ’05 — was indicted back in November for 2 counts of 3rd degree rape for incidents that took place in September ’14.
Officials say Shattuck began seducing the boy back in May after she saw his picture on Instagram — and first got physical with him in the back seat of her car in a middle school parking lot … with kissing and touching.
But investigators say things escalated during Labor Day weekend … when Molly seduced the boy at a rented beach house she was staying at with her own kids — performing oral sex on him at least 2 times.
Now, we’ve learned Shattuck struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which she agreed to plead guilty to one count of rape in the 4th degree … and could face up to 15 years in prison when sentenced in August.
The relationship began at the end of May when Shattuck spotted photos of the teen on Instagram and posted a comment about them, according to information contained in an application for a search warrant.
After the victim replied thank you in a private message through Instagram, Shattuck’s son sent the victim his mother’s cell phone number, saying, “You should text my Mom, she is obsessed with you,” according to court records.
The budding friendship continued through the summer and progressed from chats about daily life to provocative talk and text messages into trysts in the rear seat of Shattuck’s Cadillac Escalade where the two would make out and grope each other, court records said.
Now that Molly Shattuck, 48, has pled guilty to the plea bargain she will face sentencing in August, and is facing up to 15-years in a federal penitentiary.
15 years behind bars AFTER accepting a plea sounds pretty outlandish, but she did commit multiple acts, and seduced a minor with her own children present….Pretty fugged up if you ask me.
This story is developing and we’ll be sure to bring you more details as they emerge. For information on the initial indictment you can read up on our report from November.
