There maybe a double standard when it comes to male and female rapists. According to a report by WBAL11, an ex-Baltimore Ravens cheerleader got a slap on the wrist for raping a 15-year-old boy.
Molly Shattuck, 47, began having an inappropriate relationship with the 15-year-boy last year. Shattuck invited the boy, who was a friend of one of her kids, to a beach house along with three other boys during Labor Day weekend. Weeks prior to the trip, Shattuck’s son gave the victim her number and told him that his mother thought that he was hot after seeing his pics on Instagram.
During their stay at the beach house, she provided alcohol to the underage boys. On the last day of the two-day trip, Shattuck performed a sex act on the 15-year-old victim. In June, she pleaded guilty to fourth-degree rape and was recently sentence.
Judge E. Scott Bradley sentenced her to 15 years in prison, but he suspended the sentence. Instead, Shattuck will only serve her time by checking into jail for the next 48 weeks. If she is able to serve her sentence without issues, Shattuck will be a free woman by next summer. She must also register as a sex offender and pay $10,650 restitution to the victim’s family.
The boy’s parents were outraged by the sentence and believe that she stole their son’s innocence.
