Dani Mathers Due In Court Today Over Locker Room Photo

Playboy centerfold Dani Mathers is due in court Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of invasion of privacy.

Mathers, who ignited a backlash of criticism when she secretly snapped a photo of a naked 71-year-old woman in a locker room and posted it online mocking the woman's body will attend Wednesday's hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court, her lawyer said.

Mathers, 30, has apologized for taking the photo at an LA Fitness club in July and posting it on Snapchat with the caption: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The posting was accompanied by a selfie of Mathers in a tank top with her hand over her mouth as if she's gasping in horror.

The 2015 Playmate of the Year was roundly criticized for the so-called body shaming incident. Mathers said she intended to send the photo privately to a friend and accidentally posted it publicly.

Defense lawyer Dana Cole argued unsuccessfully that the charge should be dismissed because the woman in the photo can't easily be identified.

The victim, who has not been named, is expected to testify if the case goes to trial, said Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney.

Cole said he's hoping to work out a settlement Wednesday. He said prosecutors want a guilty plea and community service on a highway crew. Wilcox said no plea deal has been offered.

Deputy City Attorney Chadd Kim did not return phone and email messages seeking comment, but in court papers said Mathers had shown no remorse and needed to face consequences for her "cruel and criminal act."

The defense has argued for a more lenient outcome, saying in court papers that Mathers has already lost modeling work and a job as a radio host. They have recommended she use her notoriety to bring attention to the issue of body shaming.

in a just world, dani mathers would be forbidden future plastic surgery and forced to post nude photos of herself every 10 years for the rest of her life. (yes, this case pushes my buttons.)

She was really bratty about it too, as if she was treated unfairly and it was an accident. Nobody does that. She's not cool and no more hot than any other blonde bimbo

This was SO MUCH MORE than body shaming. If a man had taken those pictures it would have been called a much different issue. I don't know the name but it would involve perversion, harassment, indecency, etc.

if she was a real woman, she would have been praising a elderly person who was in the gym instead of shaming her publically. If she had done that to my Mother I would have had to be restrained from kicking the sh*t out of her.

Apologies are meaningless. Throw the book at her. Put her in general population where her c*nty behavior will be sooo popular.
