POSTED:



LOS ANGELES >> Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra has pleaded guilty to three counts stemming from a bankruptcy fraud case in Los Angeles.

Dykstra entered his plea Friday in federal court to one count each of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of assets and money laundering. He faces up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 3.

Prosecutors said that after filing for bankruptcy, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items without permission of a bankruptcy trustee.

Dykstra is currently serving a three-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. He also was sentenced this year to nine months in jail after pleading no contest to charges he exposed himself to women he met on Craigslist
