COULMBUS, Ohio -- Prosecutors want the maximum sentence for an Ohio man who confessed to a fatal DUI crash on YouTube.
Matthew Cordle, 22, faces up to eight years in prison.
Cordle pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide after his drunk driving killed Vincent Canzani in June.
In August, he created a YouTube confessional, admitting to driving his truck “completely blacked out,” and going the wrong way on the highway into oncoming traffic. He also begged viewers to not drink and drive.
Cordle said he made the video to own up to what he did, not to seek leniency, although his attorneys are seeking a reduced sentence.
Cordle is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 23.
