Tammy Lynn Sytch made plenty of headlines after her most recent DUI charge. Sytch was arrested for DUI manslaughter charge in May 2022 due to her involvement in a fatal three-car crash in March of the same year. One of the parties involved in the car crash, identified as Julian Lafrancis Lasseter Jr. of Daytona Beach Shores, was transported to Halifax Health Medical Center where he was declared dead. Whitney Hill, Lasseter’s daughter, is now suing the former Superstar for her heinous actions. Her legal team is still trying their best to work on her behalf.

PW Insider reports that Tammy Sytch‘s defense attorney filed a motion on Wednesday to delay her pre-trial hearing in her DUI manslaughter case. The public defender has requested the honorable court to delay the pre-trial conference scheduled for next Thursday.

The motion states the need for additional time to prepare Tammy Sytch‘s case for trial, including the previous waiver of her right to a speedy trial. The motion further cites that the defense is waiting on law enforcement to provide a copy of the Traffic Homicide Investigation report. As of February 10, 2023, the court is yet to rule on the motion.

Sytch has been charged with one count of DUI Manslaughter, one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, and six counts of DUI causing damage to property and injury to a person.


Under Fla.R.Crim.P.3.190(f), defendant, Tamara Lynn Sytch, moves for a continuance of the February 16, 2023, PreTrial Conference on the following grounds:

1. The defendant in this case is currently charged by Information with one count of DUI Manslaughter, one count of DWLS with Death and six counts of misdemeanor DUI.

2. Several rounds of depositions have been completed and additional depositions are outstanding and being scheduled in this matter.

3. The defense is also waiting on law enforcement to either complete or provide a copy of the Traffic Homicide Investigation report. The State has assisted the defense in requesting this information from law enforcement.

4. Additional time is needed to prepare this case for trial.

5. The defendant previously waived her right to speedy trial.

6. The defendant would request a double roll continuance.

7. Assistant State Attorney Ashley Terwilleger has been contacted and does not object to the granting of this motion.

8. This motion is made in good faith and not for purposes of delay.

On January 25th, the Circuit Court of the Sevenths Judicial Circuit in and for Volusia County, Florida officially added a third defendant to the civil lawsuit filed against Tammy Lynn Sytch and her fiancé, James Pente. The third defendant was Ultimate Motor Cars, LLC, the company from which Sytch was financing the car involved in the three-car traffic incident.
