Forty-eight-year-old Molly Shattuck, the ex-wife of former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo A. Shattuck, confessed to having an affair with the teen on Tuesday, June 16. This means she is now a felon and sex offender, per The Baltimore Sun's Ian Duncan.
Back in Nov. 204, Shattuck was accused of sexual abuse. The victim, whom she alleged to have performed oral sex on in a rented vacation house, is a classmate of her son, per The Baltimore Sun.
When Judge E. Scott Bradley asked Shattuck in court on Tuesday if she commited the offense she pleaded guilty to, she replied in the affirmative, per Duncan.
Shattuck will be senteced at an Aug. 21 hearing. Duncan says she could face up to 15 years in jail.
As part of a plea agreement, Shattuck is not allowed any unsupervised contact with childern other than her own. She will also undergo DNA, tests, HIV tests and a mental health evaluation. In exchange, several charges which include third-degree rape will be dropped, per The Baltimore Sun.
Another part of the plea is for Shattuck to register as a sex offender on Delaware's list for 25 years.
Former Delaware prosecutor Michael W. Modica told Duncan that Shattuck received no preferential treatment:
"I don't think she was treated any differently because she was a woman," Modica said. "She's looking at a serious potential sentence."
Modica told The Baltimore Sun that Shattuck being tagged as a sex offender is "almost worse than a jail sentence."
Baltimore County District Court documents reveal Shattuck's affair with the teen began on Instagram in May 2014. The relationship developed to a point where Shattuck kissed him in the back seat of her Escalade last summer, per Duncan.
She then performed oral sex on her twice while she was on vacation with her kids in Bethany Beach during Labor Day Weekend of last year, per The Baltimore Sun.
Duncan stresses Shattuck had an interview with The Baltimore Sun just months before the incident with the teen. In that interview, she discussed details of her divorce, which ended a 17-year marriage to her husband.
Shattuck was free on an $84,000 bond while awaiting trial. When she left the courtroom on Tuesday, she sped off on an SUV without talking to reporters, per The Baltimore Sun.
Defense attorney Michelle Lipkowitz told WBALTV.com's Jayne Miller on June 16 her client has accepted responsibility for what she did:
"Ms. Shattuck has accepted full responsibility for her actions today.
"This is obviously a very difficult time. Therefore we ask you respect the privacy of all involved. It would not be appropriate for me to make any further comments at this time."
Lipkowitz requested for a pre-sentence investigation. Shattuck's status as a first-time offender should work to her benefit in an attempt to reduce her sentence, per Miller.
Shattuck owns the distinction of being the oldest NFL cheerleader, per Duncan.
