Lenny Dykstra Sentenced In Lewd Conduct Case

In March, former major league outfielder Lenny Dykstra was sentenced to three years in state prison in California for his part in a fraudulent car-leasing scheme.

So when the headline “Dykstra sentenced to prison” came across Twitter on Tuesday, you could have been forgiven for thinking it was a repeat. It wasn’t; Dykstra received an additional sentence on another conviction:

Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been sentenced to nine months in jail after pleading no contest to charges he exposed himself to women he met on Craigslist and assaulted one.

Dykstra entered his plea 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.

That’s really all that can be said about this; it’s a sad ending to a once-promising career.
