Lenny Dykstra Sentenced to Extra Jail Time for Bankruptcy Fraud

The former Mets player and Encino resident is already serving a three-year prison term for an auto theft case.

Lenny Dykstra, Encino resident former player for the New York Mets, was sentenced this week to an additional 6 and a half months in prison on  bankruptcy fraud and other federal charges, according to CNN.

In November, prosecutors recommended that Dykstra receive a 30-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud, according to the City News Service.

Dykstra, already serving a three-year term behind bars in an auto theft case, pleaded guilty earlier this year to several federal counts including bankruptcy fraud, concealing property from the bankruptcy estate and money laundering, according to the City News Service.
