Defense Attorney Files Motion For Delay Of Hearing In Tammy ‘Sunny’ Sytch Case


Tammy Sytch‘s defense attorney has filed a motion to delay her pre-trial hearing in her DUI manslaughter case.

The motion cites the need for additional time to prepare the case for trial, as well as Sytch’s previous waiver of her right to a speedy trial. The motion also states that the defense is waiting on law enforcement to provide a copy of the Traffic Homicide Investigation report. As of February 10, 2023, the court has not yet ruled on the motion.


Sytch was arrested in May of 2022 over the incident, which took place in March of that year. She was charged with one count of DUI Manslaughter, one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, three counts of DUI causing damage to property, and four counts of DUI causing injury to a person.

The full motion reads:
