Dykstra pleads not guilty to charges

Published Sep. 7, 2011 1:00 a.m. ET

Former New York Mets star Lenny Dykstra on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to two counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure after allegedly exposing himself to women he met via Craigslist, the Los Angeles Times reported.

According to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, Dykstra, whose wife filed for divorce in 2009, used Craigslist to post advertisements for a personal assistant or housekeeper.

When he met the women who answered his ads, Dykstra would "inform the women that the job also required them to give a massage and [he] would expose himself to them," the attorney's office said.

At least six women are involved in the case, with reports from 2009, 2010 and February and April this year.


The 48-year-old, who was arraigned Wednesday, could reportedly face up to a year in a county jail if found guilty.

The former Philadelphia Phillies outfielder has already been ordered to stand trial on 25 criminal counts, including grand theft auto, for allegedly trying to lease cars using phony business and credit information.

Dykstra is also facing federal bankruptcy charges stemming from the alleged sale of property from his $18 million mansion in Ventura County.
