Nails In The Coffin: Ex-Met Lenny Dykstra Sentenced To Nine Months In Jail
LOS ANGELES (CBSNewYork/AP) — Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been sentenced to nine months in jail after pleading no contest to charges that he exposed himself to women he met on Craigslist and assaulted one.
Dykstra entered his plea on Wednesday in a Los Angeles courtroom to one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct. He also received three years’ probation.
Prosecutors say Dykstra exposed himself to several women who responded to ads for personal assistants and housekeepers. During one incident, prosecutors say, Dykstra held a knife and forced the woman to give him a massage.
In March, Dykstra was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. He is currently awaiting trial on federal bankruptcy charges.
