Playboy Playmate To Clean Graffiti For Nude Gym Pic

Dani Mathers earned fame posing as a nude model. The gym contacted the police after it verified she took the photo.

Defendants who plead no contest do not admit guilt but do not dispute the charges and are convicted.

"The issues that surround body shaming can be devastating-not only to daughters and mothers, but also to sons and fathers, members of the LGBTQ community, to a trans kid who might be struggling with identity, to people who are disabled", wrote Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, who handled the case. "People are mocked, they're humiliated and in ways they can never fully get back".

Shortly after posting the photo Ms Mathers claimed it was an "accident" and that she had meant to send it as a private message.

The 2015 Playmate of the Year faces a misdemeanor charge of invasion of privacy for posting the photo on Snapchat with a caption saying she couldn't "unsee" the image. The shamer quickly became the shamed.

In the fallout that ensued, the model lost her job at Los Angeles radio station KLOS, where she was a contributor. She complained of being bullied online.

"Dani is very relieved that this process is going to be behind her", her attorney Tom Mesereau said by phone.

"She really apologizes from the bottom of her heart for what happened", defense attorney Thomas Mesereau said outside the downtown Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday.

"I think she wanted to be done with this and accept responsibility for what occurred", he said.

This week, the bill was approved by the state's Senate and is waiting to be approved by the state's Assembly.

Feuer criticized Mathers for fighting the case "tooth and nail" to avoid legal consequences.

Mathers was ordered to pay her 60 dollars (£46) to replace a backpack seen in the photo so she would not easily be identified.

Based on past conversations, Kim thought the victim would be pleased with the outcome.

Mather will also be under probation for three years.

But it soon became apparent she had also broken the law.

Under terms of the plea, Mathers will be on probation for three years and must not take photos or video of people or post them online without their permission and can not have a camera in places where people are naked or expect privacy.

In July 2016, Mathers posted a photo of a naked 71-year-old woman on social media from an LA Fitness gym.
