Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers caused outrage earlier this year when she took a photo of an unsuspecting woman in a gym change room and put the photo online with a nasty caption, now she could face prison time.
In July the nude pin up model mocked an innocent woman changing in a gym on Snapchat with the caption, “if I can’t unsee this then you can’t either”, and now she is set to face criminal charges and six months in jail after police located the victim, reports gossip site TMZ.
The site says the woman – who is in her 70s – wants to proceed with prosecution and TMZ claims that their inside sources claim police want to make an example out of Mathers who broke laws prohibiting the dissemination of private images.
TMZ say the police have reportedly accused the 2015 Playmate of the Year 2015 of “egregiously violating a member’s right of privacy by taking a picture of her while naked in the shower, and then humiliating her by posting the picture with a disgusting caption”.
Mather’s claims she never meant to make the post public as she was only trying to send the image to a friend.
After the uproar the blonde took to Twitter to apologise for her actions.
“There is no excuse,” she wrote on Twitter. “I understand fully the magnitude of this post that I have hurt a lot of people, women. Body shaming is not okay...and not something to joke about.”
Regardless of her apology, she has been banned for life from LA Fitness, stood down from Playmate duties indefinitely and lost her job at a local radio station.
