Molly Shattuck Arraigned On Charges Of Rape
Shattuck, 47, faces charges stemming from an alleged relationship she had with a 15-year-old boy over Labor Day weekend. Shattuck allegedly began flirting with the boy, a classmate of her son’s, on Instagram in May and the relationship continued throughout the summer, culminating in a weekend away with Shattuck and her three children on Labor Day weekend. Shattuck is accused of inviting the boy to a beach house in Delaware, giving him alcohol and performing oral sex on him.
Shattuck turned herself in Wednesday morning, and was arraigned on nine-counts: two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor. Shattuck entered a plea of not guilty and was released after posting an $84,000 bail. Conditions of her bail stipulate that Shattuck have no contact with the victim or any minors other than her children and the former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader also had to turn over her passport.
“She is maintaining her innocence. She is obviously quite distraught,” said Shattuck’s lawyer, Eugene Maurer.
Shattuck has resigned from all nonprofit organization boards – she was known as a local philanthropist in Baltimore, serving on the boards for the Baltimore School for the Arts and the National Children’s Museum.
Shattuck has not released a statement of her own since her arrest, but a family spokesman who works for her ex-husband Mayo Shattuck, released a statement saying, “Mr. Shattuck is shocked and saddened about the allegations against his ex-wife, from whom he is divorced. He is focused on the care and welfare of his children, who are with him, and is deeply concerned about others affected by this. He requests that the privacy of his children be respected.”
