GEORGETOWN, Del. — Molly Shattuck, a former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader and the ex-wife of a prominent Maryland energy executive, has pleaded guilty after being charged with having sex with a 15-year-old boy.

CBS News reports Shattuck, 48, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of fourth-degree rape — a felony that can carry up to 15 years in jail. She made the plea before a Delaware judge days before her trial was to begin.

Shattuck will have to register as a sex offender. Her sentencing is scheduled for mid-August.

Shattuck was indicted last year for rape, unlawful sexual contact and providing alcohol to minors. She pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Authorities say that Shattuck began an inappropriate relationship with the boy in Maryland and that the two engaged in sexual activity at a vacation rental home in Bethany Beach, Delaware, over Labor Day weekend.
