Former WWE star Sunny, real name Tammy Sytch, is going to be standing trial for DUI manslaughter among other charges.
Sytch was arrested on May 6, 2022 after a traffic fatality incident on March 25, 2022 where 75-year-old Julian Lafrancis Lasseter died after it was believed Sytch had crashed into him and caused a three-car collision in Ormond Beach, Florida.
Sytch’s blood alcohol level at the time was determined to be 0.280, which is 3.5 times more than the legal limit to be operating a motor vehicle.
Sytch’s nine charges are one count of DUI causing death (DUI Manslaughter), one 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.
DUI Manslaughter is a second-degree felony in Florida, and if Sytch is convicted, she could face up to 30 years in prison, with the minimum sentence being four years.
PWInsider reports that the trial is slated for the week beginning September 18, 2023 and will take place over that week.
Jury selection is set for September 15, and there is scheduled to be a docket sounding against Sytch on August 16.
