When 2015 Playmate of the Year Dani Mathers decided to Snapchat a body-shaming pic of a naked woman at her gym last summer, Mathers faced more than fan disappointment on account of her privacy-invading act. The LAPD tracked down the 70-year-old victim, who encouraged police to charge the Snapchatting model. Now, Mathers鈥 last-minute attempt to avoid trial has failed, and she will finally be facing the legal consequences of her actions.

Charged with 鈥渕isdemeanor invasion of privacy under a California law that prohibits the secret recording or photographing of an 鈥榠dentifiable person鈥 in a home, changing room or tanning booth without the subject鈥檚 consent,鈥 according to the Daily News, the 30-year-old model鈥檚 attorney tried to have the case dismissed, arguing, 鈥淭his was a far-away shot, and the victim, her features cannot be identified.鈥

However, LA judge Gustavo Sztraicher disagreed, ruling, 鈥淭he court finds the statute is constitutional and not void for vagueness.鈥 In other words, just because you can鈥檛 see the woman鈥檚 face clearly, doesn鈥檛 mean what Mathers did was okay. In fact, it鈥檚 still totally illegal.

With Mathers鈥 trial now tentatively set to start on May 26 and the model 鈥渄efinitely鈥 testifying, we鈥檒l just have to see how she tries to argue her way out of this body-shaming, privacy-violating mess and if she鈥檒l end up with the聽jail time and an added fine聽that many feel she deserves, while others think is far too much.
