After the incident in July 2016, Mathers said: 'That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do.

When 2015 Playmate of the Year Dani Mathers chose to Snapchat a body-shaming pic of a naked woman at her gym last summer, Mathers faced more than fan disappointment on account of her privacy-invading act.

"I understand that I've upset a lot of you, but we're at a point, 1 year later, where I'm pretty upset and hurt too", she wrote.

The trial is tentatively set to begin May 26.

Mathers post provoked backlash as she was accused of "body shaming" by activists.

Mathers was slammed on social media so badly for the act that she wound up deleting her popular accounts.

In February, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office scoffed at Mathers' request to have her sentence deferred, stating that Mathers "does not qualify nor merit such leniency".

Raisi has been campaigning on that, proposing cash payments for the poor that proved popular in the past under Ahmadinejad. Rouhani added that tourism in 2013, before the deal lifted some sanctions, was less than that recorded in April this year.

Under Californian law it is illegal to photograph or record an "identifiable person" in a residence, changing room, or tanning booth.

The Playboy star initially tried to evade trail by having her lawyers claim laws in California surrounding privacy are too vague, reports New York Daily News.

The Playboy Bunny was sacked from her job on a Los Angeles radio station after the event.

Attorney Dana Cole said the victim can not be easily identified because the photo was shot from far away.

At the time, the attorney of the 70-year-old woman said "body-shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences".

"While body-shaming, in itself, is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one's privacy to accomplish it can be", Feuer added. "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'".
