Lenny Dykstra

Former MLB great Lenny Dykstra struck a deal in his mega-criminal case, by pleading no contest to 3 counts of felony grand theft auto, and one count of submitting false statements to a financial institution.

Dykstra is charged with 25 crimes, but under the plea deal, 21 will be dismissed.

Dykstra will be sentenced on January 20.  He faces a maximum of 4 years in state prison.

Dykstra is accused of leasing luxury cars from an L.A. dealership with fraudulent paperwork.  There were also drug charges filed.

He's been released on his own recognizance until his sentencing.

Nails is deluded due to drugs. The root of all his problems. Released on his own recognizance? Watch for this to be the next pro athlete to take his own life. He's just crazy enough to do that instead of going to prison. It's too bad, he was a great player, but today is just a sad, broken mess. C ya Nails, wouldn't wanna be ya. Anymore.
