Former Ravens cheerleader will serve 48 weekends in jail.
Molly Shattuck, the former Ravens cheerleader who gained national attention as the oldest cheerleader in the NFL, will serve every other weekend in jail for a period of two years for the sexual assault of a 15-year old Howard County youth.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Shattuck appeared to sob in court and apologized to the parents of the teen, who said in court that the ordeal had been agonizing for the family.
The sentence is technically a suspended sentence, Delaware officials said. Shattuck was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but that was suspended for two years of spending every other weekend in jail. She will register as a Tier II sex offender in Delaware. Shattuck took a plea deal earlier this summer, admitting to a charge of rape of the teenage boy. As a result of the deal, other charges against her in connection with the case were dropped.
Shattuck appeared to shutter her Vibrant Living fitness business and resigned multiple community board seats in the wake of the charges.
