Garbage human and former Playboy model Dani Mathers, who incurred worldwide wrath after posting a body-shaming photo of a naked woman at her gym on Snapchat last July, agreed to a plea deal in a Los Angeles judge's chambers on Wednesday. She posted the surreptitiously-taken photo of the naked 70-year-old woman with the caption "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The 2015 Playmate of the Year faced a possible six-month jail sentence on misdemeanor invasion of privacy charges for last summer's incident, which occurred at a local LA Fitness health club (Mathers was later banned from all LA Fitness locations). Mathers pleaded not guilty to the charges in November.

TMZ reports that she took the plea deal today after being offered two options by a judge: either serve 45 days in jail and 36 months probation, or do 30 days of community service graffiti removal with 36 months probation. According to TMZ, "The judge didn't lecture Dani ... it was all business." KNX's Margaret Carrero reports that Mathers pleaded no contest when she took the deal.

Defense attorney Dana Cole had previously said that Mathers hoped to work out a plea where she could avoid jail time, according to CBS LA.
