An Ohio man was sentenced Wednesday to 6½ years in prison for causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of heavy drinking, which he had confessed to in an online video.
An Ohio man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of heavy drinking pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated vehicular homicide.
A 22-year-old man who made a video to admit he killed someone during a drunken-driving accident — a video that has since gone viral with more than a million viewers — was indicted Monday for aggravated vehicular homicide.
He told his attorneys early on that he wanted to plead guilty but made the video against their advice.
Cordle acknowledged having a drinking problem after the crash and entered a treatment program as prosecutors gathered evidence against him.
