    Dani Mathers, the Playboy playmate who came under intense fire for posting a gym pic of an unsuspecting naked woman, may face jail time now that the unidentified victim has stepped forward, according to People Magazine.

    I am so upset for this poor woman who's at the gym trying to better herself. 😢 I just wish I could give her a big hug. Hopefully this hasn't turned her and others off going to the gym. I hope people can learn from this girl's mistake. It's time we all supported and uplifted each other - especially us women! Enough with the hate, body shaming and ridiculing others! 😢 I'm sure there are many of you who have been body shamed in some way before and I want you to know that it has NOTHING to do with you. If someone can be so nasty and low they obviously have their own issues they haven't dealt with. I don't believe that bullying and body shaming should be ignored, we need to stand up to it. IT HAS TO STOP. Actions and words REALLY hurt people and destroys lives. Let's show love, kindness, acceptance and support - not hate. X . .

    The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the woman, in her 70s, has come forward and was inclined to press charges against Mathers. 

    According to the Los Angeles Times, "State law prohibits recording and photographing someone in a private setting in which they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Such a crime is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail."

    But police were unable to proceed with any criminal complaint until a victim stepped forward.

    Mathers, the 2015 Playmate of the Year, claimed she meant to forward the post to select friends and not all her followers. She later apologized for the social media post.
