Lenny Dykstra in more trouble, Charged for indecent exposure - Could Face 6 Months Plus other Charges Pending

According to Reuters, Lenny Dykstra, the 48-year-old former New York Mets World Series hero was charged with two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine per count if convicted, Los Angeles City Attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

Mateljan said Dykstra is accused of exposing himself to six women who answered ads he placed on Craigslist between 2009 and April of this year seeking a housekeeper or personal assistant.

"He would inform them that they also needed to give him a massage and then he would take off his clothes and expose himself to them," Mateljan said.

The charges against Dykstra come as he already faces considerable legal troubles.

In July, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the former athlete to stand trial on 25 counts of grand theft auto, attempted grand theft auto, filing false financial statements and possessing a controlled substance.

That case stems from what Los Angeles County prosecutors say was a scheme by the former athlete, his accountant and another man to lease cars using phony business and credit information.

A search of Dykstra's home during the investigation allegedly turned up cocaine, Ecstasy and a synthetic growth hormone.

He faces 12 years in state prison if convicted at trial.

An unrelated indictment handed down by a federal grand jury in May accuses Dykstra of stealing or destroying some $400,000 in property that was part of his bankruptcy case.

The former ballplayer faces up to 80 years in federal prison if convicted in that case, according to federal prosecutors.
