Delaware State Police released details on the arrest and indictment of Molly Shattuck on charges of having a sexual relationship with a minor. The 47-year-old Baltimore resident was arrested Wednesday morning at Sussex County Superior Court in Georgetown, Delaware.
She was charged by a Grand Jury on Monday with two counts of rape, two counts of unlawful sexual contact, and three counts of providing alcohol to minors. Shattuck pleaded not guilty to the charges, and, according to the Associated Press, posted $84,000 bond.
On Sept. 26, Baltimore County police contacted Delaware State Police saying that a 15-year-old boy disclosed that he was involved in an inappropriate relationship with Shattuck. According to police, the relationship began in the Baltimore area. But it “culminated” over Labor Day weekend in Bethany Beach, Delaware, police said. According to records obtained by WBAL-TV, that’s when Shattuck bought alcohol for minors. She then performed oral sex on the boy, “first outside the home while walking the dog and again in her bedroom,” according to the station.
Delaware State Police searched Shattuck’s North Baltimore home on Oct. 1, but did not disclose what they found.
Earlier on Wednesday, McDonogh School headmaster Charles W. Britton informed parents in a letter that he reported an incident about a sophomore’s inappropriate relationship with a parent to police on Sept. 24. Britton said the parent involved is now banned from the school’s premises.
“We are committed to doing everything we can as a school to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the student in this deeply disturbing situation,” Britton wrote.
According to court records, Shattuck entered divorce proceedings on Sept. 29 from former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck. The two were married in 1997, and have three children. In interviews earlier this year, Molly Shattuck said the couple had separated.
Shattuck famously joined the Ravens’ cheerleading squad in 2005. At that time, the 38-year-old was touted as the NFL’s oldest cheerleader. She was also featured on the reality show Secret Millionaire. She then launched an exercise video and website called Vibrant Living, and wrote a book of the same name. The website has been down for at least two weeks.
