UPDATE: In an update on Tammy Sytch’s scheduled court appearance earlier today, the hearing has been moved to February 17th. The former WWE “Diva” is currently incarcerated at Carbon County Prison in Pennsylvania. She has been there since late September after she violated the terms of her parole.
ORIGINAL: Former WWE “Diva” and WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch is scheduled to be sentenced today (Friday) at 1:15 PM ET by Judge Joseph J. Matika. The sentencing relates to her violating her probation after pleading guilty to three DUI-related arrests from 2015 and another one from this past August. As previously reported here on eWN, Sytch was sentenced to 97 days in jail after the judge warned her that if she got into any trouble while on probation, she would immediately be sentenced to jail. The judge made it very clear that there would be “zero tolerance” for any drug and alcohol use. Sytch was given credit for the 95 days she spent in rehab and for the two days she spent in prison and awarded her parole. She was also ordered to pay fines of $2,100 and court fees of $1,000 and a $50 per month fee to cover the cost of her court-mandated supervision. Sytch’s driver’s license was also suspended for 30 months and she was ordered to complete 125 hours of community service.
Lehigh Township Police arrested and charged Sytch with receiving stolen property on September 5th. This resulted in a parole violation. A week later on September 12th, she was charged with possession of alcohol as well as being under the influence of alcohol. These were also violations. It should be noted that September 12th is the same day she was rushed from her home in Palmerton, PA to Palmerton Hospital.
Sytch will be back in court on January 12th (for the September 5th incident) and will be arraigned on charges of receiving stolen property (a misdemeanor with up to one year in jail and/or a fine of $2,500), as well as charges of driving without a license, driving an unregistered vehicle, operating a vehicle without required financial responsibility (no insurance), displaying plate card in improper vehicle (license plates were on a car they didn’t belong to), fraudulent use or removal of registered licensed plates, operating a vehicle without valid inspection, and driving without Evidence of an Emission Inspection (required in the state of PA). Most of those charges result in a possible 90 day jail sentence and/or a $300 fine for each offense.
