Ohio man who confessed online to DUI, fatal crash pleads guilty

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of heavy drinking has pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide.

Matthew Cordle, 22, of Powell also pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Attorneys for Cordle said he wanted to plead guilty to make good on his pledge to accept responsibility for the June 22 crash.

In a video posted two weeks ago, Cordle admitted he killed a man and says he “made a mistake” when he decided to drive.

Cordle faces up to 8 1/2 years in prison.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 10.
