Los Angeles prosecutors are nearing a ‘final decision’ on whether or not to prosecute former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers, ABC News reported on Monday.

ABC was following up on a story on Monday by gossip site TMZ.com which said the woman who was unsuspectingly photographed naked by Ms. Mathers back in July had come forward with an interest in pressing charges.

“The woman is more than willing to testify and cooperate in any way she can to bring Mathers to justice,” according to TMZ, which added that police would like prosecutors to file charges of dissemination of private images, a misdemeanor under California law carrying a 6-month jail sentence.

“We did receive the case from the LAPD, it’s currently under review from our office,” the Office of Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer told ABC News in a statement on Monday. “We will be making a final decision soon, but there’s no timetable at this point.” ABC News added that the LAPD didn’t respond to a request for comment.

When news of the incident went viral in July, Ms. Mathers was banned for life by the gym chain Planet Fitness and lost her recurring radio gig with KLOS radio.

For her part, Ms. Mathers insisted she didn’t mean to make the naked photo of the unsuspecting woman public. She apologized on July 14 via Twitter, writing, “I’m sorry for what I did… I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing. Goodnight.” She has not tweeted since.
