Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck pleaded guilty to one count of fourth degree rape in an appearance Tuesday in Sussex County Superior Court. Sentencing is set for Aug. 21.

Ms. Shattuck, in a court appearance before Superior Court Judge E. Scott Bradley, pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree rape, a felony.

She faces a maximum of 15 years in prison when sentenced on Aug. 21. Ms. Shattuck will also be required to register as a Tier II Sex Offender, according to Delaware Department of Justice spokesman Carl Kanefsky.

Authorities accused Ms. Shattuck, now 48, of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-rold boy that began in the Baltimore area and culminated at a Bethany Beach rental home last September over Labor Day weekend.

She was indicted Nov. 3, 2014 by the Sussex County Grand Jury on two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor. Ms. Shattuck turned herself in Nov. 5, 2014, was formally charged and released on $84,000 secured bond.

In 2005, at age 38, Ms. Shattuck became the oldest member of Ravens cheerleader squad – and the oldest-ever cheerleader on an NFL squad. She is former wife of Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck.
