6 ½ years for fatal DWI crash confession in viral video

COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio man was sentenced Wednesday to 6 1/2 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.

 

Matthew Cordle, 22, had faced up to 8 1/2 years in prison. “Whatever my sentence may be, there’s no fair sentence when it comes to the loss of a life,” Cordle told the judge before the sentence was handed down.
