A Playboy Playmate could face up to six months in prison for publicly sharing a photo of a naked woman at the gym.

Dani Mathers, 29, posted a photo of the naked woman on Snapchat in July at an L.A. Fitness gym with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

Now that the woman in the photo has come forward to police, Mathers could face up to six months behind bars on a misdemeanor dissemination of private images charge, TMZ reported.

Mathers — accidentally, she says — shared an image of a naked woman showering at an L.A. Fitness gym alongside a picture of her laughing at the woman to the public.

She got a lot of flack for sharing the image, and issued an apology over Twitter and in a video on Snapchat after deleting the image.

In her video apology, she claimed that the image was meant to be sent privately to a friend and said, “I have chosen to do what I do because I love the female body and I know that body-shaming is wrong and it’s not what I’m about. It’s not the type of person that I am.”

She then deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Breitbart previously reported that Mathers lost her regularly-scheduled gig on KLOS 95.5’s “Heidi and Frank” show, and was banned for life from using L.A. Fitness’ facilities.

The Los Angeles Police Department opened a criminal investigation into the incident and asked the woman in the picture to come forward and aid in the investigation.
