Sunny Sytch will spend time in prison

ESPN is reporting that former pro wrestler Tammy Sunny Sytch was sentenced to 17 years in prison on Monday for killing 75-year-old Julian LaFrancis Lasseter of Daytona Beach. She began her WWE career in 1995 and also managed other pro wrestlers and was a broadcaster. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.

The 50-year-old whose license had been suspended had previously been arrested multiple times for driving under the influence in Pennsylvania. She did have a driver's license in Florida where the crash occurred in March 2022.

Sytch had a history of drinking and driving

In August she pleaded no contest to driving under the influence, manslaughter, and other charges. Authorities said she had cannabis in her system and an unsealed bottle of vodka in her vehicle. After the sentencing, State Attorney R.J. Larizza gave the following statement.

"The defendant's history of drinking and driving is horrendous," "It was only a matter of time before her drunk driving killed an innocent and unsuspecting individual."

During her sentencing hearing on Monday, the Hall of Famer was facing more than 25 years in prison. At that time Tammy "Sunny" Sytch said she felt remorse and regret "deep in my soul."
