Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra pleaded guilty Friday to three counts of bankruptcy fraud.

Dykstra entered his plea in federal court to charges that also include concealment of assets and money laundering.

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

Dykstra is already behind bars. He's serving a three-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.

He was also sentenced to nine months in jail this year after pleading no contest to charges he exposed himself to women he met online.

He faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced on December 3. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
