Tammy Sytch aka WWE’s Sunny made a change in her DUI case with sentencing coming later in 2023.

Wrestling fans know Tammy Sytch as Sunny, a WWE “diva” from the mid-to-late 1990s. The 50-year-old Sytch was in a deadly traffic crash in Ormond Beach, Florida that led tothe death of 75 year old Julian LaFrancis Lasseter.

On March 25, 2022, Sytch was driving while drunk when she failed to stop her car and hit the back of Lasseter’s car. According to TMZ, at the time of the accident, officials alleged at the time of the accident she had a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher.

Earlier today, Tammy Sytch (Tamara Sytch) pleaded no contest to a felony charge of DUI causing death.

Initially, Sytch pleaded not guilty to all of the charges, but she changed her plea just days before she was going to go to trial.

The TMZ report also noted that in addition to the plea to felony DUI causing death, she also pleaded no contest to one felony charge of driving with license suspended causing death, four misdemeanor counts of DUI with damage to a person, and two misdemeanor charges of DUI with damage to property.

Sentencing for Sytch hasn’t been put on the docket, but she’s facing a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.

It has since been reported that Sytch will be sentenced on November 27th at 9 AM.

The 2022 drunk driving accident causing death was one of the many legal issues that Sytch has had in her life, including numerous DUI arrests and other incidents. In 2015-16 alone, she had four different arrests in the state of Pennsylvania. There were more arrests for Sytch in the state of New Jersey as well.

Sunny Is A WWE Hall of Famer

In 2011, WWE inducted Tammy Sytch as Sunny in their Hall of Fame. During her WWE career, she was a manager of tag teams like the Bodydonnas, The Smoking Gunns and Legion of Doom. Sunny was also a host of WWE television shows, she modeled and was at one time the most downloadable woman in the world…or so WWE claimed. Her WWE career lasted about four years from 1995 to 1998.

During most of her career, Sytch was paired with Chris Candido, who was known as Skip in WWE. She also dated Shawn Michaels in WWE for about a year. After leaving WWE, Sytch and Candido went to ECW and later WCW.

The relationship between Chris and Tammy was covered on an episode of Dark Side of the Ring earlier this year. Sadly, Chris Candido died in 2005 at the age of 33.

It is not known if WWE would take action by removing Sunny from their Hall of Fame if she is given a lengthy prison sentence.
