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.
