From the Associated Press, here’s the latest on the legal trainwreck that is Lenny Dykstra’s life these days.
Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been sentenced in Los Angeles to six and a half months in prison for hiding and selling sports memorabilia and other items that were supposed to be part of his bankruptcy filing.
U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson also ordered Dykstra to pay $200,000 in restitution and perform 500 hours of community service. He pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and money laundering charges and prosecutors were asking for a 2 1/2-year prison sentence.
Dykstra is already doing three years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. He was also sentenced to nine months in jail earlier this year after pleading no contest to charges that he exposed himself to women that he met through Craigslist. It’s sad that today’s sentence can actually be seen as a minor victory.
