Mathers last July
posted to social media a picture of the woman in the shower area
of a Los Angeles fitness center, city officials said.
At her sentencing, the judge also placed Mathers on probation
for three years, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney's
"The message today is clear: body shaming is not tolerated in
the city of Los Angeles," Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer
said in a statement.
The photo contained the caption, "If I can't unsee this then you
can't either" and showed Mathers covering her mouth. Mathers was
publicly condemned by social media users and prosecutors charged
California law prohibits secretly taking such photos, but not
their distribution online. Legislation under consideration at
the state capital would establish penalties for sharing them on
the Web, Feuer said.
Mathers, 30, could have faced up to six months in jail.
"Dani is very relieved that this process is going to be behind
her," her attorney Tom Mesereau said by phone. "She's very
apologetic and very remorseful over what happened. We're all
grateful that she is not going to receive any jail time and
pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor."
