Former WWE star Tammy Sytch, also known as Sunny, was sentenced to 17 years in prison last week as part of a plea deal related to a DUI manslaughter case. The charges stemmed from a car accident in March 2022 that resulted in the death of 75-year-old Julian Lasseter. Sytch was sentenced on November 27th for her role in the incident.

While her legal troubles have been a focal point in Florida, a recent report via PWinsider provides insight into her legal status in other states. In Pennsylvania, where she had faced legal issues in the past, Sytch currently has no outstanding charges. However, she owes thousands of dollars in restitution to the state, a debt that was ruled repayable in July. Nonetheless, there have been no recent payments made towards this obligation.

In New Jersey, there are pending charges against Sytch. The state had been waiting to determine the outcome of her Florida criminal charges before deciding whether to proceed with their own case.

Regarding civil lawsuits, Sytch was removed from a lawsuit filed by Jane Olivova, a passenger in another vehicle involved in the accident. The suit now only names Geico, Olivova’s insurance company, as the defendant.


The estate of Julian Lasseter continues to pursue a lawsuit against Sytch and her fiancé James Pente. However, there are currently no scheduled court hearings for this lawsuit.
