Former Playboy playmate facing jail over naked Snapchat

Former Playboy playmate facing jail over naked Snapchat

Mathers was Playmate of the Year in 2015, and she is arguably an example of classic beauty-she is thin, has a symmetrical face, and has long blonde hair.

Playboy model Dani Mathers has rejoined Instagram as her trial date for body-shaming looms.

The 29-year-old Mathers faced widespread criticism after she shared the photo on Snapchat in July 2016 with the caption: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either".

Her lawyers said she meant to send the photo privately to a friend and inadvertently posted it publicly. Mathers' lawyers are now arguing that the law the social media post supposedly violated is unconstitutionally vague.

Charged with "misdemeanor invasion of privacy under a California law that prohibits the secret recording or photographing of an "identifiable person" in a home, changing room or tanning booth without the subject's consent", according to the Daily News, the 30-year-old model's attorney tried to have the case dismissed, arguing, "This was a far-away shot, and the victim, her features can not be identified". Charges can result in up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

She apologized last summer after an intense backlash.




The person in the photo was identified only by her age and it was not clear if she knew she was being photographed.

Mathers, who has no criminal record, has offered to make amends by using her notoriety to bring attention to the issue of body shaming.

The Playboy Miss May 2014's legal team insist the image of the 70-year-old woman is grainy and not identifiable, but LA Deputy City Attorney Chadd Kim scoffed at the defence and claimed it was for a jury to decide.

"I know body-shaming is wrong and I know that that's not what I'm about, that's not the type of person that I am".

"Body-shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences", he said.
