Sytch had pleaded no contests in August to charges stemming from a crash in March 2022 that killed Julian LaFrancis Lasseter, the NY Post reports.
The former wrestler and manager was alleged to have a blood-alcohol content three and half times the legal limit, according to WKMG in Florida.
The 50-year-old Sytch’s sentence includes eight years of probation after the completion of her prison term.
Her driver’s license has been permanently revoked as well, according to TMZ.
The sentence had been handed down just after 3pm in a Volusia County courtroom following a hearing that lasted several hours.
During the hearing, Sytch did address the courtroom and at one point broke down in tears as she apologised for her actions.
‘I know my words are not enough. But please know I think about you every day,’ Sytch said while looking back at the victim’s family, according to Fox35.
‘Every second of every day, and I will do whatever I can to make the changes I need to make sure this never happens again. No one should have to go through this and please know that every single second of every day since the crash, I wish I could change places with him.’
Sytch had been possibly facing up to 26 years behind bars for the crash that caused the death of Lasseter.
She was convicted of….
She was charged with a number of charges that included DUI causing death, causing death while operating a motor vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, four counts of DUI causing injury to a person and three counts of DUI causing damage to property.
Sytch had crashed into Lasseter, who had been stopped at a red light in the 100 block of North Yonge Street in Ormond Beach.
His car was pushed into another vehicle. Lasseter died of his injuries.
