Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck, 47, who is charged with raping a 15-year-old boy, reportedly became obsessed with the alleged victim after seeing photos of him on Instagram, according to court records obtained by the News-Journal.
Shattuck’s son reportedly played matchmaker between his mother and the alleged victim, who attends the same school.
Last May, Shattuck reportedly posted a comment about the alleged victim’s photos on his Instagram page. The alleged victim replied “thank you” in a private message.
Here’s what happened next, according to the News-Journal:
“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.
While the relationship began in Baltimore, it really heated up in Delaware.
“Over Labor Day weekend, she allegedly performed oral sex on the victim while outside the home (a rented beach house in Delaware) and later invited him to her bedroom where they each stripped down to their underwear and fondled each other, the documents show.
The victim told police Shattuck had offered to have sex with him, but he ‘decided to leave at that point and go back to the rooftop.’
Later that morning, the victim’s father picked him up and took him home,” according to the News Journal.
Back in 2005, Shattuck became the oldest cheerleader in the NFL when she made the Baltimore Ravens cheerleading squad. She was 38-years-old at the time.
Shattuck cheered for the Ravens for two years and was a part-time coach for six years.
She’s also a “healthy living” expert and wrote a book about the topic. Here’s an interview with Shattuck from last April:
Shattuck reportedly started flirting with the alleged victim four months before her millionaire husband, former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck III, filed for divorce.
The actual divorce filing occurred two days before police searched the Shattuck’s home, according to ABC News.
She was indicted by a Sussex County, Delaware grand jury on two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to minors.
Update: The mother of three was sentenced in August 2015 to 48 weekends in a community corrections center.
