Dykstra seeks to withdraw no-contest plea in CA
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra is seeking to withdraw his no-contest plea in Los Angeles on charges of auto theft and providing a false financial statement.
Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says the office was notified Wednesday that the ex-baseball star has filed a motion to withdraw his plea. Dykstra is scheduled to be sentenced Monday, facing up to four years in prison as part of a plea deal.
A phone message seeking comment from defense attorney Andrew Flier was not immediately returned.
Dykstra and two co-defendants are accused of trying to lease and then sell high-end cars from several car dealerships in January by claiming credit through a phony business. Dykstra also faces federal bankruptcy fraud charges.
