No charges against Shattuck in Baltimore County

Baltimore County's top prosecutor says he will not pursue criminal charges against former Ravens cheerleader and fitness author Molly Shattuck after re-examining allegations of sexual abuse involving a teenage boy.

State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger said Friday that his office has spoken with a representative of the victim's family.

Shattuck, 48, admitted to performing oral sex on the boy last summer at a vacation house in Bethany Beach, Del. She pleaded guilty in a Delaware court to fourth-degree rape and was sentenced last month to 48 weekends in a community corrections center.

Shattuck was scheduled to report to a Delaware corrections facility this weekend to begin serving her sentence. Her attorneys didn't return calls seeking comment Friday.

When Shattuck was arrested last November, authorities said she would pick the boy up from class and take him to a parking garage at the T. Rowe Price building in Owings Mills, where they would "kiss or 'make out'" in the back of a car.

The boy, who was 15, attended McDonogh School in Owings Mills with Shattuck's son.

Shellenberger said in a statement that he decided against pursuing additional charges against Shattuck "after careful consideration of all relevant facts and circumstances including the nature of the allegations of what occurred in Baltimore County, as well as the recently concluded prosecution in Delaware."

He declined to comment further.

The Baltimore Sun generally does not name victims of sexual crimes.

Some victims' advocates have said the Delaware sentence was too light. Prosecutors sought jail time, and sentencing guidelines called for up to 22 months for the fourth-degree rape charge.

Shattuck originally faced other charges — including providing alcohol to a minor — that were dropped as part of her plea agreement.

Shattuck was required to register as a sex offender in Delaware and in Maryland for 25 years.
