Just a hint from the New York Daily News . . .
He earlier told the Daily News he would fight the charges, calling them a “joke.”
“Of course I’m not guilty,” Dykstra said Monday.
Dykstra allegedly had the drugs on him when he was arrested April 14 following a sting that also targeted accountant Robert Hymers, 27, and friend Christopher Gavanis, 30.
The men allegedly tried to lease various high-end automobiles from several dealerships last January using fraudulent information and claiming credit through a “phony” mortgage modification business, Home Free Systems, prosecutors said.
“We leased cars. This isn’t some grand scheme to defraud anyone of Ford Flexes,” Dykstra scoffed.
You’ll recall that the reason Robert Leslie Hymers’ bail was set so high is that he also victimized an accounting client of his, by having this innocent bystander sign papers that made him appear to be an officer in Dykstra’s phony company–hence, the judge felt that he had violated his fiduciary duty to the client, and set bail at the same level as that of Dykstra himself.
An awful business all around.
