WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch, famously known as Sunny, was sentenced to 17 years in prison followed by nearly a decade of probation for her involvement in a fatal DUI crash in Florida last year. Sytch, a New Jersey native, pleaded no contest to various charges related to the 2022 Daytona Beach incident. These charges encompassed driving under the influence with a suspended license, causing bodily harm, and property damage.
The 50-year-old wrestling icon has already served over 500 days, which will be credited against her sentence. Additionally, she is required to complete 50 hours of community service and pay a $10,000 fine. During her sentencing, Sytch expressed deep remorse, wishing she could swap places with the victim, 75-year-old Julian Lassiter, whom she killed in the crash involving multiple vehicles.
As Reported by Fox Sports, The police reported that Sytch’s blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit at the time of the accident. The family of Lassiter expressed their disappointment with the sentence’s length, believing it should have been more severe.
Sytch, who rose to fame in WWE as the first “diva,” has faced multiple legal issues since 2012, including several DUI arrests in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Her sentencing marks a significant downfall for the once-celebrated wrestling star.
