Ex-cheerleader guilty of rape
A Delaware judge on Friday sentenced former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck to two years of probation for the sexual assault of a 15-year-old boy at a vacation rental home, calling the case a difficult one and saying the socialite has already suffered great public humiliation. Shattuck, who pleaded guilty to the rape charge, will serve 48 weekends in jail for the term of the probation. Prosecutors said the mother of three performed oral sex on the teenager, who attended McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Md., with her son. "I take full responsibility for what I did," Shattuck, 48, said in between sobs as she stood before Judge E. Scott Bradley. Shattuck is the former wife of Mayo Shattuck, former CEO of Baltimore-based Constellation Energy and current chairman of Chicago-based Exelon Corp.
Conviction in X-ray plot
An upstate New York man was convicted Friday of plotting to kill Muslims with a mobile X-ray device by a jury that rejected his lawyer's argument that he was entrapped by the FBI. Jurors in Albany found Glendon Scott Crawford, 51, guilty of attempting to produce a deadly radiological device, conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and distributing information about weapons of mass destruction. Crawford, an industrial mechanic at General Electric in Schenectady, could face 25 years to life in prison.
