Lenny Dykstra indicted on thirteen counts of bankruptcy fraud

Dykstra

Remember how Lenny Dykstra was arrested for bankruptcy fraud?  Yeah, he’s indicted now. Thirteen counts, reports CNBC’s Darren Rovell.  If he is convicted on all counts he faces 80 years.  Given his business acumen, however, I’m sure he could talk it down to 95.

This is just the latest in a long line of fun for Mr. Dykstra. He was once accused of destroying and/or absconding with property he shouldn’t be destroying or absconding with, though that may be related to the current charges (haven’t seen the indictment). While his financial troubles have mostly hurt himself, it is apparent that he frittered away his son’s signing bonus too.  And then there are the various and sundry issues he’s had ranging from ripping off his escort to having some, ahem, trouble with his would-be cleaning lady.

Enjoy life on the inside, Lenny. You’ve done enough outside.

    Man, I cannot believe what a loathsome scumbag this guy turned out to be.

    C’mon, he conned his own MOTHER out of money…does it get any worse?

    Oh, and why is Jim Cramer still given respect and relevance? Anyone remember this video?

    Maybe he could share a cell with Denny McLain. Is Denny still inside? I kinda lost track of him. Denny and Lenny. It makes for a nice bit of ass-o-nance.

    I wonder what type of bankruptcy fraud he engaged. Many people assume that they can transfer assets out of their name and file for bankruptcy. They don’t realize the consequences of their actions until much later. I
