    Former Phillies and Mets center fielder Lenny Dykstra pleaded no contest to lewd conduct charges based on his alleged conduct with women who responded to his Craigslist ad for personal assistants. He was sentenced to nine months in jail. Last month, he was sentenced to three years in prison on a separate conviction.

    Former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Lenny Dykstra has been sentenced to nine months in jail after pleading no contest to charges he exposed himself to women he met on Craigslist and assaulted one.

    Dykstra entered his plea Wednesday in a Los Angeles courtroom to one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct. He also received three years' probation.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, part of Dykstra's plea deal bars him from posting or soliciting on social networking and e-commerce websites for three years.

    Prosecutors say Dykstra exposed himself to several women who responded to ads for personal assistants and housekeepers. During one incident, prosecutors say, Dykstra held a knife and forced the woman to give him a massage.

    In March, Dykstra was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. He is currently awaiting trial on federal bankruptcy charges.
