LOS ANGELES — Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers will likely be prosecuted now that the LAPD has tracked down the woman seen in a photo Mathers posted at the gym, TMZ reports. The woman, in her 70’s, wants legal justice for what Mathers did to her.

Mathers shared the photo back in July on Snapchat with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” The woman seen in the photo is reportedly working with prosecutors to go after Mathers, who took the photo as the woman changed clothes in a gym locker room.

According to TMZ, if convicted, Mathers could face 6 months in jail for “dissemination of private messages,” a misdemeanor.

It didn’t take long after the image hit the internet for a ton of criticism to come crashing down. Tons of people tweeted Mathers saying she violated the woman’s privacy and body shamed her.

In a video on YouTube featuring several Snapchat posts, Mathers apologized for what she did. The 29-year-old said she accidentally shared the photo and that it was supposed to be a personal message to a friend, not a public post.

“I just wanted to acknowledge a photo that I accidentally posted here on Snapchat earlier today and let you guys know that that was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do,” said Mathers. “I have chosen to do what I do for a living because I love the female body and I know that body shaming is wrong and that’s not what I’m about, that’s not the type of person that I am.”
