DALLAS - 2015 Playmate Dani Mathers took a picture of a naked woman in her 70’s at the gym, then posted the picture that read, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”
Mathers claims she was sending the post to a friend and didn’t realize it went out over Snapchat. Soon, LAPD got involved.
North Texas defense attorney Loretta Powers says not only is this a criminal matter, but the naked woman in the picture can sue for damages. “Because unfortunately for this woman, it is nearly impossible to get your naked photo taken off the internet," Powers said.
But it took LAPD a while to track down the woman in the buff. TMZ is reporting that they did find the woman and will be filing charges.
In California, the charge is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of six months in jail. But try that in Texas and it’s a whole different matter.
“Usually a third-degree felony punishable by two to ten years in a state jail prison," Powers said.
Besides being booted from the gym, Mathers has since apologized and taken down the post. But even if she meant to send her post to one person, attorneys say she broke the law no matter how many people saw it.
