Molly Shattuck, formerly the oldest cheerleader in the NFL, was sentenced to 48 weekends in jail on Friday for raping a 15-year-old boy.

The ex-Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, 48, burst into tears as the judge announced her sentence, according to NBC News. She then promised to make amends.

“I will spend the rest of my life making this right,” she said.

In June, Shattuck pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree rape in the Sussex County Superior Court in Georgetown, Delaware.

Her relationship with the boy allegedly began online in May 2014. Shattuck eventually invited the victim, along with her children and some of their friends, to a vacation home in Delaware over the Labor Day weekend.

The boy later told police she gave him alcohol and performed oral sex.

On Friday, the victim’s mother and father asked the judge to sentence Shattuck to more than just probation.

“Any adult who rapes a child deserves to be in prison,” the boy’s mother said in court, according to USA Today. “Please hold her accountable.”

Shattuck will spend every other weekend in jail for the next two years.
