Thanks to Donald Trump, we've heard a lot about what goes on in men's locker rooms. But a few months ago, Playboy model Dani Mathers lost a radio gig and her gym membership over a Snapchat that body-shamed a naked stranger in the shower at an LA Fitness location—and now she could go to jail for it.

TMZ reports that the LAPD has tracked down the unsuspecting 70-year-old woman in the photo, and that she has agreed to proceed with prosecution: L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer on Friday formally charged Mathers with invasion of privacy, which, much like a violation of California's revenge porn law, is a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to 6 months in jail.

"Body-shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences," Feuer said in a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times. “It mocks and stigmatizes its victims, tearing down self-respect and perpetuating the harmful idea that our unique physical appearances should be compared to air-brushed notions of 'perfect.' What really matters is our character and humanity. While body-shaming, in itself, is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one's privacy to accomplish it can be. And we shouldn’t tolerate that."

Meanwhile, Mathers' attorney Tom Mesereau told TMZ, "I’m disappointed that she was charged with any type of violation. She never intentionally violated anyone’s privacy and never tried to break the law at any time." But unless the jury is made up of other former Playboy playmates, that line of argument probably won't hold up in court. Mathers herself has been mostly mum on the controversy, occasionally apologizing. Her most recent tweet was about yoga.
