A former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader was indicted Monday on two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to minors.
Molly Shattuck appeared for an arraignment Wednesday in a Delaware courthouse and was released on $84,000 secured bond.
Shattuck pleaded not guilty to the charges, her defense attorney Eugene Maurer said.
"Like anybody who would be charged with an offense of this nature, she's quite distraught and dealing with it the best she can," Maurer added. "Obviously, she's very upset about it."
On Sept. 26, a 15-year-old boy told police that Shattuck began an inappropriate relationship with him near Baltimore and that it culminated with sexual activity at a vacation rental home in Bethany Beach over Labor Day weekend, said Delaware State Police Sgt. Paul Shavack. Police executed a search warrant on Shattuck's Maryland home Oct. 1 and seized items. Shavack declined to specify what they were.
The indictment alleges Shattuck provided alcohol to three underage boys on Aug. 30 and Aug. 31 and had sexual contact with one of the boys near Aug. 31.
In Delaware, third-degree rape offenses apply when an older person has sex with an underage person. Shattuck is facing two to 25 years in prison for the Class B felony charge.
In a letter sent Wednesday to parents, the headmaster of the school the teen attends — the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland — wrote he became aware of "inappropriate behavior by a current parent" and a student on Sept. 24 and reported the allegations to police.
"While I was instructed by the police not to communicate with you until now because of the criminal investigation, I want you to know that the parent has been prohibited from entering McDonogh's campus and additional security measures have been in place to assure the safety of students since the incident was reported," Headmaster Charlie Britton wrote.
Shattuck became the NFL’s oldest cheerleader in history when the Ravens chose her to be on its quad. Shattuck also was a part-time coach for two years as well.
Shattuck is also separated from Mayo Shattuck, former CEO of Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, a Baltimore-based company. He is also the current chairman of Chicago-based Exelon Corp. Exelon, which has electric and gas utilities in Maryland, Illinois, and Pennsylvania, now owns Constellation.
