Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers Charged for Snapping Nude Photo

EXCLUSIVE

Dani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who secretly took a pic of a naked woman at an L.A. gym and then shamed her on social media -- has just been charged with the crime of invasion of privacy ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Mathers was at her LA Fitness and zeroed in on an elderly woman who was changing clothes in the locker room. She posted the pic and then tagged it, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

It took some hunting by LAPD detectives, but they found the victim, who was game to have Mathers prosecuted.

The L.A. City Attorney has now pulled the trigger. If convicted she faces 6 months in jail.

Mathers is also persona non grata at LA Fitness.

Dani's attorney, Tom Mesereau, tells 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."
