breaking news

More slammertime for disgraced baseball star Lenny Dykstra ... Nails has just been sentenced to 3 months in L.A. County Jail for allegedly holding a knife to a woman's throat.

Dykstra pleaded no contest to charges of assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct this morning ... for incidents involving women he lured to his home by posting ads for a housekeeper on Craigslist.com.

Officials tell us ... when the women would arrive to his home, Dykstra would inform them the job required them to give him a massage ... and then he would expose himself.

Dykstra allegedly ran the scheme at least 6 times ... and during one of the incidents, officials say he held a knife against a woman's throat and forced her to massage him.

In exchange for his plea, Dykstra was sentenced to 3 months in jail and 3 years probation. 

Dykstra's no stranger to the pokey ... just last month, he was sentenced to 3 years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.

Sorry but this dirt bag should be doing a lot more time for the things he has done! If this was a ordinary citizen, he would be doing at least 20. Hope the justice system in La La land are proud of themselves " let the celebrity go" Ever hear of sending the criminal to another state if there is no room in the accused state!!!Shameful is all I have to say.

One other thing, Wesley Snipes is doing more time then this piece of crud....and all he did was not pay his taxes. Lenny has done worse then that and only gets 3 months,something is wrong here!

"...sentenced to 3 months in L.A. County Jail" Processing, and "overcrowded" cells, and since he didn't really use the knife, one week [maybe]. Unless, you're poor and have a name like Juan or Teshan in which case you're looking at 5 yrs w/no parole. So whoever was afraid that having a Black president was going to ruin the status quo ante can relax... business as usual.

3 months? holding a knife to her throat and making her massage him seems like sexual assault in my book. Should have got a lot more time.

this swirling toilet bowl of a life will forever keep swirling. it never ends with this loser.

LOL! Why do they bother with it? I'm just glad it wasn't a hispanic, asian or black who had done that. They would have been eligible for social security before they'd be eligible for parole.

So what...do we wait for people to actually die before thinking about giving some real time. The sentence is more sad than the offense.
