Dykstra is currently behind bars in L.A. after he was charged with 23 felonies earlier this month -- including possession of cocaine and ecstasy.

Lenny's team has been trying to convince the judge to lower Dykstra's bail in the hopes he can get out of jail and begin treatment ASAP ... but so far, the judge won't budge.

Lenny - Don't you worry about the expenses of rehab. You will have a lot of time in prison with its free "in-the-big house medical plans" to treat you. Also, since you will be serving a couple of decades behind bars, by the time you get out you'll be on Medicare to cover the costs of your mental & medical drug problems.

OK lets see here, he was charged with 23 felonies, so that means because he is a celebrity he will end up plea bargaining and get 2 years probation and 200 hours of community service. While the average pinhead would end up with a 12 to 15 year prison sentence and then if he gets out of prison alive he will be on life-time probation. That sounds fair!

Lenny Dykstra is the biggest, racist scam artist I EVER met! He was trying to sell like a "time share" for private jets. He employed my modeling agency to do a casting for him to hire flight attendents... The check was written from an over drawn, closed account from some random business, that went bankrupt, I found out when trying to sue him for my money. The judge wouldn't let me sue him personally. Only his company! I basically can kiss that money goodbye!! I remember all his racist, sexist comments he made about the models. He even said his German Shephard was trained to hunt Jews! He's crazy!!
