Molly Shattuck Registers As A Sex Offender; May Face Additional Charges

BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) -- WJZ brought you the breaking news Tuesday that Molly Shattuck could face new charges for her sexual relationship with her son's underage friend. Wednesday, we caught up with Shattuck here in Baltimore.

Mike Hellgren has more.

She signed in to City Police Headquarters in Baltimore just before 12:30 p.m., where she registered as a sex offender. It's part of her sentence in Delaware that she has to register. But there's more: the initial search warrant listed several other encounters in Maryland with the teenage victim---and that leaves open the possibility that Shattuck could be charged here.

Molly Shattuck and her lawyer walked out of Baltimore police headquarters moments after she registered as a sex offender and with a new problem hanging over her.

Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Schellenberger confirms he's revisiting her case and speaking to the victim's family as he considers whether to charge her.

"They will look at how the conduct here in Baltimore County compares to what was charged in Delaware, what the sentence was in Delaware," said Andrew Levy, a legal analyst and attorney with Brown, Goldstein and Levy.

While a Delaware judge already sentenced Shattuck to 48 weekends behind bars for raping her son's 15-year-old friend at a vacation home there, the initial search warrant---which WJZ was first to obtain---also contains allegations that Shattuck had liaisons with him in Columbia, Mount Airy and Owings Mills. The Baltimore County encounters happened throughout July of last year.

According to that warrant, she would pick him up from his summer class at the McDonogh School, then take him to the T-Rowe Price parking garage, where "they would talk and eat and then get in the back of the car and kiss or make out."

The warrant also alleges she touched his genitals.

"We have no comments at this time," said Shattuck's lawyer, Michelle Lipkowitz.

Baltimore County's State's Attorney would not give a timeline for his re-visiting of the case.

We also contacted the Howard County State's Attorney's Office and officially, they had no comment on the matter.

"The fact there's been a potential charge in one jurisdiction is not double jeopardy in terms of the right of another jurisdiction to pursue it," Levy said.

"You can keep calling us but there will be no further comments at this time. I don't recommend it," Lipkowitz said.

Shattuck will start serving her Delaware sentence next month.

"The only talking she should do should be to her lawyer, her psychologist and an apology to the victim," Levy said. "Other than that, she should be talking to no one."

The victim's parents both gave emotional statements in court in Delaware last week, calling Shattuck a rapist and saying their son's behavior changed because of the rape.

The prosecutor said Shattuck groomed the young victim, supplied him with alcohol, then took advantage of him---all for her own gratification.

Shattuck, a lifestyle guru, gained fame as the NFL's oldest cheerleader. She was married to former Constellation CEO Mayo Shattuck. They have three children together.
