New York Mets baseball legend, Lenny Dykstra, has been sentenced to three years in California state prison. Dykstra pled no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. The former Mets hero had pleaded not guilty to 25 counts after his arrest last April. During Dykstra’s arrest police found cocaine, Ecstasy, synthetic human growth hormone in his home. In October he had changed his plea to no contest. Prosecutors dropped 21 of the counts against him. Dykstra and 2 other men used false financial statements to obtain cars from a dealership. The Miami Herald is reporting there are still tough times ahead for the one time baseball star:

Dykstra still faces federal bankruptcy charges and is scheduled to stand trial this summer. He filed for bankruptcy a few years ago, claiming he owed more than $31 million and had only $50,000 in assets. Federal prosecutors said that after filing, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items from the $18.5 million mansion without permission of a bankruptcy trustee. –
