GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck has been sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to raping a 15-year-old boy at a vacation rental home in Delaware.
 
The 48-year-old collapsed to her knees after she was sentenced Friday morning and wept as she apologized. Shattuck, who received a suspended 15 year prison sentence, must report every other weekend to a probation center in Delaware, register as a sex offender and continue therapy. The teen's parents said Shattuck stole their son's innocence and urged the judge to send her to prison to send a message to potential pedophiles.
 
Shattuck pleaded guilty in June to one felony count of fourth-degree rape. She entered the plea just days before her scheduled trial on more serious charges.
