Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra pleaded no contest in a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday to one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct. He was sentenced to nine months in jail and three years’ probation.
It came to light last year that Dykstra was placing ads on Craigslist for personal assistants and housekeepers. Prosecutors said he exposed himself to several women who responded to those ads. 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.
