Prosecutors want to send Lenny Dykstra away for two and a half more years

Former Major League baseball player Lenny Dykstra appears in Los Angeles Superior Court for an arraignment in San Fernando, California Reuters

The latest on Nails:

Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles are asking that former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra serve a 21/2-year prison sentence for pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud and money laundering. Prosecutors said in court documents filed Thursday that a 30-month sentence is appropriate for Dykstra because he has acted as if he was above the law for years.

He’s already doing three years for other stuff. And frankly, given how many charges were thrown at him here, he should probably count himself lucky that he may only get two and a half more years.

    Can we send Curt Schilling along with him?

    30 months seems kind of light considering all that he has done. Then again, this also seems like a cut and dry insanity defense. If Lenny’s not crazy, then I don’t know who is.

    sounds like the way Mit Romney made his money

      Actually, Nails’ accounting practices are probably closer to how our federal government handles its money.

    Man belongs in prison. Justice being done. Enough said.

    Prosecutors want to send Lenny Dykstra away for…ever.

    Remember when Dykstra was going to save all the current players from spending their money and saving for after their playing days. Even a mag had him as an investment wiz.

    What a joke.

    Crazy. These guys have the world by the gonads but always find a way to piss it all away. Nice job, Lenny.

    Club FED for him. His fellow inmates are more Wall Street crooks. Now if we could only add the current White House administration to his prison, all would be well. Holder , top of the list.

    He’s probably better off there anyway. It doesn’t seem to me that he can take care of himself properly out in the real world.
