Trial date set for ex Ravens cheerleader facing sex charges
(WBALTV.COM) BALTIMORE, Md. – Baltimore socialite and former Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck returned to court in Delaware on Wednesday and got a trial date in connection with sex charges filed against her.
Shattuck is set to go to trial on March 23.
The trial date comes two months after she was indicted on charges of sexual misconduct with a 15-year-old boy, a relationship that started on Instagram.
The former Ravens cheerleader has pleaded not guilty in the case. Shattuck is accused of becoming intimate with the boy last summer, then performing oral sex on him in a Bethany Beach, Delaware, house she had rented with her kids over the Labor Day weekend.
Shattuck made no comment inside or outside the courtroom Wednesday. While her lawyers met with prosecutors, she sat quietly in a courtroom, reading a book of motivational writings.
Shattuck was met by a wall of cameras as she arrived at the Sussex County Courthouse, wearing dark glasses and using her lawyers to shield her from the press of reporters.
There was no proceeding before a judge Wednesday. Her lawyer said it was just a routine review of the status of the case.
“It’s just an opportunity to talk to the prosecutor a little bit and make sure we have all the discovery we need. That’s all that happened. So, nothing really eventful today,” Shattuck’s attorney, Eugene Maurer, said.
When asked how Shattuck is holding up, he said, “She’s OK. She’s stressed. It’s hard on her, but she’s hanging in there.”
By this point in this case against her, prosecutors should have presented an offer of a plea bargain to Shattuck, according to Delaware procedure.
“I’m not discussing plea offers. I am not allowed to discuss plea offers,” Maurer said.
Nor will Shattuck’s lawyers discuss the specific allegations.
“I don’t have any comments on that. We pled not guilty,” Maurer said.
Miller reported that Shattuck appeared to get special treatment from courthouse security because she was permitted to go out of a back door. Reporters who cover the courthouse beat regularly told 11 News that that door is normally reserved for some witnesses and victims, not defendants.
