Tammy Sytch Files To Appeal For Length Of Prison Sentence



Tammy Sytch has filed an expected appeal of her prison sentence to attempt to get the total time served reduced. She was sentenced to 17 years in prison on November 28th in a plea deal that saw her plead guilty to one count of causing death while operating a vehicle, with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, and one DUI causing death in relation to the car accident that caused the death of 75 year-old Julian Lasseter. She will have another eight years of probation after that.

It was noted that Sytch’s lawyers were intending to file an appeal to get the length reduced, and PWInsider reports it being filed on December 20th. To be clear, she is not trying to appeal the verdict, just the time served. Sytch’s public defender wrote in the filing:

Notice is hereby given that Tamara Lynn Sytch, Defendant-Appellant appeals to the District Court of Appeal, Fifth District of Florida, the Order of this Court rendered on November 27, 2023.

The nature of the Order is a final order adjudicating defendant guilty of the following:

DUI Manslaughter (Count One), Driving While License Suspended with Death (Count Two), DUI with Damage to Person (Count Three), DUI with Damage to Person (Count Four), DUI with Damage to Person (Count Five), DUI with Damage to Person (Count Six), DUI with Damage to Property (Count Seven) and DUI with Damage to Property (Count Eight) and sentencing her to:

1. Count One: 7 years Department of Corrections followed by 8 years probation with fines, court costs and standard conditions including permanent driver’s license suspension, alcohol safety education course, victim awareness program. Count One is to be served consecutive to Count Two.

2. Count Two: 10.6625 Years Department of Corrections with credit time served for 566 days.
