Lenny Dykstra Charged With Indecent Exposure For Allegedly Showing Equipment to Women Responding to Craigslist Ads
As if baseball legend Lenny Dykstra didn't have enough problems, what with the allegations of selling off household items after placing his estate in a bankruptcy court's hands, grand theft, and drug possession, the L.A. City Attorney's office today announced that he's been accused of indecent exposure.
Not only that, but the case allegedly involves women he met via Craigslist ads seeking housekeepers.
The 48-year-old was charged with two counts of indecent exposure, according to a City Attorney's statement.
Here's what prosecutors allege:
Charges against defendant Dykstra stem from several reported incidents including one report in 2009, three reports in 2010, and reports in February and April of 2011. In each of the incidents, advertisements were placed by defendant Dykstra on the Craigslist website requesting personal assistant or housekeeping services. When the victims arrived at the locations to meet Dykstra, he would allegedly inform the women that the job also required them to give a massage and would expose himself to them.
If convicted Dykstra could face a year behind bars and up to $2,000 in fines. He's due in court Sept. 7.
