PLAYERS: Lenny Dykstra
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. Dykstra could face 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in July to charges that he hid and sold sports memorabilia and other items which were supposed to be part of his bankruptcy filing. Dykstra is currently serving a three-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 3.
