Tammy Lynn Sytch, better known to long-time pro wrestling fans as Sunny, was sent to jail this morning. A judge decided that she was too big of a risk to the community to be a free person while she awaits trial for DUI manslaughter charges. Sytch is accused of hitting and killing a 75-year-old man who was standing at a traffic light.
At a bond hearing this morning, the judge ordered Tammy Lynn Sytch to return to jail while she awaits her trial. She is facing up to 30 years behind bars. Sytch had hoped to be able to stay home while she prepared to go to court.
The Office of the State Attorney issued a press release this morning on the matter. RJ Larizza, who is in charge of the case, also made a statement. He said that a deadly and dangerous person has been once again removed from the streets.
“A deadly driver will reside behind bars until her case is resolved. A serious and dangerous threat to the driving public has been removed.”
The press release from the State Attorney’s office had similar undertones. It noted that they hope the move to remand Tammy Lynn Sytch to prison gives some peace to the victim’s family and friends. Sytch may remain in jail for a long time given the severity of her offenses.
Tammy Lynn Sytch has faced a litany of charges across three states over the years. Her drunk driving problem finally killed someone, and the State Attorney is taking the matter very seriously. Time will tell what kind of sentence she will receive if she is found guilty.
