The former All-Star outfielder was accused of luring five unsuspecting women to his residence between 2009 and 2011 using Craigslist ads requesting personal assistant or housekeeping services.
When the victims arrived, he said massages were part of the gig and then exposed himself, prosecutors said.
During one incident in July 2010, Dykstra held a knife and forced the victim to massage his body, the Los Angeles City Attorney said Wednesday.
Already serving three years for felony auto theft, Dykstra was slapped with nine months in jail and three years probation for the new conviction.
A lawyer for Dykstra's alleged April 2011 victim said he now plans to file a civil lawsuit.
"Will we get anything from him? Probably not, but we're going to try," lawyer Mauro Fiore told the Daily News. "My client was severely traumatized by this joker. She's a very sweet lady, and she felt threatened by a weapon she saw on the table."
