The life of Tammy Lynn Sytch has been full of hills and valleys, but right now she is at another low point. She is set to face trial for a DUI Manslaughter charge, and court is coming sooner than expected for the WWE Hall of Famer.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch has entered a plea of no contest to a felony charge of DUI, marking a significant development in her legal case.

Tammy Lynn Sytch’s arrest in May 2022 was connected to the unfortunate death of Julian Lasseter, a 75-year-old individual who lost their life in a traffic incident that took place in Ormond Beach, Florida, back in March 2022. The charges she faced included one count of DUI causing death, another count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, four counts of DUI causing injury to a person, and three counts of DUI causing damage to property.

As reported by TMZ today, Sytch’s decision has potential repercussions, with a maximum prison sentence of 25 years now looming. Initially asserting her innocence to all charges, she changed her plea in court on Wednesday, just before the case was set to go to trial.


Apart from her plea in relation to the felony DUI causing death charge, court documents detail that Sytch also pleaded no contest to a felony charge of driving with a suspended license causing death, four misdemeanor counts of DUI resulting in injury to a person, and two misdemeanor charges of DUI leading to damage to property.

The maximum 25-year sentence underscores the gravity of the situation. When she was initially taken into custody, officials alleged that Sytch had a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, a concerning detail given her history of previous arrests related to impaired driving.

Of these charges, the DUI Manslaughter charge carries the most severe implications, being a serious felony in the state of Florida. If found guilty, Sytch could potentially face a maximum prison sentence of up to 30 years, with a minimum mandatory sentence of four years, as well as fines amounting to a maximum of $10,000.

We will keep our eye on this story, and all further developments. This is not a good situation at all, and Sunny is not in a great place either. For more on this story, and many more, please keep checking back with Ringside News.
