WJZ Investigator Mike Hellgren has the details.
A shaken Molly Shattuck clung to her friends heading into court on Friday, where a judge sentenced her to 15 years behind bars, for raping her son’s 15-year-old friend. But the judge suspended most of that time. She’ll only spend two years over the course of 48 weekends.
She told the judge through tears, “I made bad choices. I ask for forgiveness. I will spend the rest of my life trying to make this right.”
“Mrs. Shattuck is extremely sorry for any pain,” Shattuck’s lawyer said.
Shattuck will do her time every other weekend and is scheduled to report in September.

Her lawyer blamed her crime on her then husband, former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck, after he abruptly left her for a younger woman.
The rape happened last Labor Day weekend at a rented house in Bethany Beach. Shattuck had been texting her son’s friend in what her lawyer called a romantic fantasy.
But the victim’s angry dad said in court, “This was a calculated act. She groomed my son over a four-month period, as a predator will do.”
The victim’s mom told the judge, “What she did to my son is heinous, the fact that she paraded her pedophilia. She violated every child-adult boundary.”
Shattuck also apologized to her own three children. Under the judges order, they are the only people under 18, whom she’s allowed to have any contact with.
Shattuck also has to pay for the victim’s counseling and register as a sex offender.MORE NEWS: Maryland Foundation Earns Guinness World Record In Order To Bring Awareness About Suicide Prevention
