WWE legend Tammy Sytch has been sentenced to 17 years in jail for her involvement in a car accident that killed a 75-year-old man.
It comes three months after she pleaded no contest to the counts posed against her – including a count of DUI causing death.
Sytch, 50, was driving a Sedan in March 2022 when he crashed into a vehicle that was being driven by Julian Lasseter and had stopped at a red light near Ormond Beach in Florida.
Police said her blood alcohol level was around three times the legal limit.
She has a 10-and-a-half year sentence for driving with a suspended license causing death and another seven years for DUI manslaughter. She also eight years probation.
According to TMZ, she addressed the victim’s family in the courtroom, where she appeared in an orange jumpsuit, saying: ‘I know my words are not enough but please know that I think about you every day.’
The 50-year-old appeared in the courtroom in handcuffs and apparently broke down in tears during her speech.
