WWE Legend Tammy Sytch Faces 25 Years in Prison for DUI Causing Death

WWE legend Tammy Sytch, also known as Sunny, is facing a potential 25-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to a charge of DUI causing death. The 50-year-old star, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011, was served the charge along with seven others in May 2022. The charges stem from an incident in March 2022, where Sytch allegedly collided with another vehicle, resulting in the death of a 75-year-old man.

According to court documents, Sytch changed her pleas on Wednesday (16.08.23) in a Volusia County courtroom. She pleaded no contest to felony DUI causing death, as well as a felony charge of driving with a suspended license causing death. Additionally, she made the same plea for two misdemeanor charges of DUI with damage to property and four misdemeanor counts of DUI with injury to a person.

Sytch’s sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled, but she could face a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison. She has been detained since May 2022, as prosecutors argued that she posed a risk to the community. Sytch had previously been arrested multiple times for obstructed use of a vehicle and faced charges of eluding a police officer, violating a domestic violence restraining order, and operating a vehicle during a second license suspension in July 2020.

The incident leading to her current incarceration involved a collision where Sytch’s car rear-ended another vehicle that was stopped at a traffic light. Officials assigned to the case alleged that Sytch had a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher at the time of the incident.

Sytch was released from prison in July 2021 after serving an 11-month sentence. At that time, she expressed her desire to move forward and put her past mistakes behind her. However, she now faces serious legal consequences for the recent DUI-causing death charge.
