The life of a WWE Superstar is not an easy one. Most of them don't live to a ripe old age. When they leave the squared circle, they tend to have a lot of problems. Tammy Lynn Sytch (aka Sunny), is not stranger to trouble. She used to bang Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels back in the day and was also rumored to have done the same to Brett Hart. Allegedly. Since leaving wrestling in the rearview, she made a few porn films. That would have probably been exciting to some, but more so if it were still 1996. Only Fans and Porn are not her problem. A seventeen year prison sentence is.
Back in March, she was involved in a fatal 3-car crash on U.S. 1. She crashed into a stopped car. The driver of the vehicle she (Julian Lafrancis Lasseter of Daytona Beach Shores, age 75) was pronounced dead upon reaching the Halifax Health Medical Center. When the tragic incident happened, she tried to absolve herself from blame. It didn't work and she was charged with the following:
– DUI Manslaughter (DUI causing the death of a person)
– Driving with a suspended or revoked license (causing death or serious injury)
– 7 counts of DUI causing damage to a person or property
Wrestlefeed and several other sources are reporting, She had a hearing today and was sentenced to 17 years in prison. She delivered this statement to the victim's family in court...
"When I was 16-years-old I applied to college to study biology and pre-med. Because I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to help people through their pain and suffering, but more importantly, I wanted to heal people.
The first line in the Hippocratic oath reads, 'I will do no harm.' On March 25th, 2022, I did the opposite of that, I did harm to someone else and my entire being was crushed. My career path took a different path from medical, but my morals and ethics remained the same.
During this time, I was able to think about times I helped people throughout my career. Through my time in the industry, I was able to help people from on spectrum to the other. I was able to entertain and bring happiness to people's lives. Once I was able to help a stranger who was having a seizure at one of my appearances at a convention, and I've made terminally ill children's' dreams come true through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
I have done something horrible, but I am so much more than the worst that I have done. I try to think about the good I've done, because when I think about what I did to the Lasseter Family that tragic day, for a stupid decision, I feel the regret and remorse deep inside my soul.
I know they don't get to rest knowing he's gone, because when I was 20 I lost my father as well to heart disease. Last August my 87-year-old grandmother passed away when I was incarcerated. I never got to say goodbye to her, just like they didn't get to say goodbye to their beloved family member.
I know how it hurts and how it tears you up, and for that, I am truly sorry, I know my words are not enough, but please know that I will do everything I can to make sure that this never happens again."
Following her incarceration, Sunny will face 8 years of probation, a substance abuse evaluation, 50 hours of community service, a $10,000 fine, and a permanent revocation of her driver's license.
She has a 30-day window to appeal and is expected to be released at the age of 67. Needless to say, there will not be anymore, "Sunny Days," anytime soon.
