Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck has been charged with two counts of rape over an incident involving a teenage boy in September.
WBAL-TV in Baltimore reports that authorities are investigating the relationship the 47-year-old Shattuck struck up with the 15-year-old after seeing his pictures on Instagram.
She apparently liked what she saw because she found a way to get her cell phone number to him, according to court documents the TV station reviewed.
Physical encounters followed — in the back seat of her car in a middle-school parking lot, in a parking garage and, over Labor Day weekend, at a rented beach house in Bethany Beach, Del., while Shattuck was watching her children and a friend’s kids.

Shattuck cheered for the Baltimore Ravens in 2005 when she became known as the oldest woman to become an NFL cheerleader at age 38.
She is the estranged wife of former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck, a relationship that captured a lot of public attention because she is younger than her husband.
On Monday she was indicted on nine counts in the ongoing investigation.
She was charged with two counts of third-degree rape stemming from the September incident in which she allegedly performed oral sex on the boy twice.
The teen described the underwear she was wearing at the time and investigators searched Shattuck’s $2.5 million home looking for the smoking gun – a pair of “pink underwear,” according to Baltimore media reports.
She turned herself into authorities early on Wednesday, pleaded not guilty and posted $84,000 bail.
