(CNN) -- The woman who was once the oldest cheerleader in the NFL faces rape charges for alleged sexual encounters with a teenager at a Delaware vacation home.
(a) A person is guilty of rape in the third degree when the person:
(1) Intentionally engages in sexual intercourse with another person, and the victim has not reached that victim's sixteenth birthday and the person is at least 10 years older than the victim, or the victim has not yet reached that victim's fourteenth birthday and the person has reached that person's nineteenth birthday and is not otherwise subject to prosecution pursuant to § 772 or § 773 of this title;
In this case it allegedly involved oral sex. Should there be another category for when you are three times as old as the victim?
Shattuck's alleged relationship with the 15-year-old boy "began in the area in which they resided near Baltimore, Maryland, and culminated with Shattuck providing alcohol to minors and engaging in a sexual relationship with the 15-year-old male at a vacation rental home in Bethany Beach, Delaware, over Labor Day weekend," Delaware State Police said.
The victim was a family friend and the same age as Molly's oldest son. What a thing to do to your children. Good grief! I hate to think of what they are going to go through at the hands of classmates.
She has pleaded not guilty and posted $84,000 bail, CNN affiliate WBAL reported.
"This is a difficult situation for everyone involved. Thank you for your time," defense attorney Michelle Lipkowitz said, according to WBAL.
Shattuck became the oldest cheerleader in the NFL when she joined the Ravens' squad in 2005 at age 38.

In 1997, she married Mayo Shattuck III, the former CEO of Constellation Energy.
(Shattuck turned the once-struggling energy firm into the country’s largest competitive supplier of electricity to large commercial and industrial customers and the nation’s largest wholesale power seller.)
The two are separated and going through a divorce, according to WBAL.
A 2008 profile of Shattuck on the Ravens' website described her as a "well-known civic leader in Baltimore."
That year, she appeared on the FOX reality show "Secret Millionaire," living for a week on low wages in a coal-mining town in eastern Pennsylvania, according to the profile.
Shattuck was nominated for a service award from Maryland's governor's office this year for her work. She also published a book, "Vibrant Living," detailing her 21-day "back-to-basics approach to better health and better habits." I'm betting it's potential to become a best-seller has been slightly diminished.
