Playboy Model Who Body-Shamed Woman Via Snapchat Could Be Jailed

Playboy Model Who Body-Shamed Woman Via Snapchat Could Be Jailed

The former Playboy Playmate who was taken to court for sharing a photo of a 71-year-old naked woman has been warned she could be jailed after it's been revealed she's not been regularly attending her community service.

According to the MailOnline, at a court appearance on Friday Dani Mathers was asked to prove her progress with the hours she'd undertaken and it was revealed that the model had only completed 54 of the 240 hours she was sentenced to so far.

Less than a quarter of what she needs to have done by 17 January.

Mathers hit headlines last year after she shared a photograph of the naked woman on her Snapchat with the caption: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

Mathers quickly came in for a lot of criticism after sharing the photo, with thousands of people calling her out body-shaming the woman, who was completely unaware that Mathers was taking her photo.

Mathers quickly removed the picture and issued a public apology, in which she said she had meant to only send the picture to her friend and not make it public - seeming to miss the point of everyone's anger completely.

Following the back-lash, Mathers was suspended from work and banned from LA Fitness; the police then got involved and Mathers was charged with misdemeanour invasion of privacy.

She pleaded no contest at Los Angeles County Superior Court in May this year and was sentenced to 240 hours of community service.

The 30-year-old took a plea deal of 30 days removing graffiti rather than serving 45 days in jail. She was placed on probation for 36 months, meaning failure to complete her community service could see her hauled into prison to serve the full sentence.

She was also made to pay $60 to the victim to replace her backpack so she couldn't be identified in public.

Speaking outside of court at the time of her original court appearance, her lawyer, Thomas Mesereau, said: "She really apologises from the bottom of her heart for what happened,

"She never thought this would come out like this. Never intended to hurt anyone."

Mathers' lawyers said she had lost a number of jobs following the incident and had complained of being bullied online.
