FORMER PHILLIES outfielder Lenny Dykstra pleaded no contest to charges of lewd conduct and assault with a deadly weapon related to sexual misconduct with women who responded to ads he placed for housekeeping on Craigslist, the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office said Wednesday.
Dykstra, 48, was sentenced to 9 months in the county jail and 3 years' probation. He also was ordered to stay away from five victims and told not to "solicit" on Craigslist or other social networking sites.
Authorities said the lewd conduct charge resulted from exposing himself to women. The assault charge resulted from a June 2010 incident in which authorities say he allegedly held a knife to the throat of a woman and forced her to massage him.
The sentence will run concurrent to the 3 years that Dykstra was sentenced to last month. He had pleaded no contest to grand theft auto and filing a false financial statement.
