Former Pro Baseball Star From Ventura County Facing More Time Behind Bars

Posted on Friday, July 13, 2012 3:21pm

Former Major League Baseball star, and onetime Ventura County resident Lenny Dykstra could be spending a lot more time behind bars than he’s facing now.

Dykstra pled guilty today to three felony counts of hiding hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets from his bankruptcy, and then lying about it.

He could face up to 20 years in federal prison when he’s sentenced in December. The 48 year old man is already serving a three year state prison sentence for grand theft auto, and filing false financial papers.

The former Philadelphia Phillies, and New York Mets star’s bankruptcy case is still pending.
