Former pro baseball player Lenny Dykstra’s housekeeper accused him of sexual assault, according to records, though prosecutors declined to file charges this month citing a lack of evidence.
According to the rejection memo by Los Angeles County prosecutors, a female housekeeper alleged Dykstra would force her to give him oral sex on Saturdays. However, the 41-year-old woman’s case seemed to flounder because of an apparent lack of evidence that the activity was forced.
Worth re-emphasizing that these accusations were found by police to be too weak to support criminal charges — sort of like the Johan Santana allegations — and that the woman only went to police once he failed to pay her money he owed her, presumably for maid services. And as we recently learned, Lenny is the kind of guy who doesn’t like to pay for services.
Note to accuser: unlike Johan Santana, Lenny Dykstra is in no position to pay you a settlement on a civil case, so you should probably not bother with the filing fee if that’s what you had in mind.
