Playboy Model is Denied Bid to Dismiss Charges in Body Shaming Case

Playboy model Dani Mathers was denied dismissal for the body-shaming case built against her.

A representative for the Los Angeles City Attorney said a judge denied Mathers' motion to dismiss the charges and her motion to continue.

Mathers said the law she was charged with violating is too ambiguous.

She is accused of secretly photographing a 71-year-old naked woman in the locker room in her LA Fitness gym on her Snapchat with the caption “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either”.

Since the posting in July, she has since been banned from all LA Fitness gyms and fired from her job as a regular at a Los Angeles radio station.

In November, Mathers was charged with one count of invasion of privacy, which can have a max sentence of six month in jail and a $1,000 fine.

When the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office was asked to defer her sentence in February, they said she didn't qualify for leniency.

“Defendant petitions the court for diversion … however, she does not qualify nor merit such leniency. Her post-crime behavior is indicative of the fact that Defendant has never shown remorse for her behavior and therefore she should face the consequences of her cruel and criminal act.”
