LOS ANGELES-- A Playboy bunny who posted insulting comments along with a photo of a naked, 71-year-old woman in a locker room lost her effort to dismiss her criminal case.

 A judge ruled against Dani Mathers on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court. 

Mathers is charged with a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy for taking the photo and posting it on Snapchat. Her caption said: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either." 

Mathers, the 2015 Playmate of the Year, later apologized for the incident at an LA Fitness club in July. 

A defense lawyer unsuccessfully argued that the law was unconstitutional because it was vague about how "identifiable" a victim needs to be. They claim the victim wasn't easily identified in the photo.

A prosecutor called the argument illogical.
