Didn't See That Coming of the Day: Matthew Cordle's DUI Confession

Favorite

We've seen a few odd cases of accidental self-incrimination before, but this just may be the first time ever in the history of YouTube that someone has publicly confessed to his crime in a video clip. On September 3rd, Ohio's non-profit group Because I Said I Would released a video showing a mosaic-censored white male confessing to hitting and killing a 61-year-old man named Vincent Canzani while drunk driving back in June. The man, who eventually reveals his face and identifies himself as 22-year-old Matthew Cordle in the same video, has been since arrested on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence and is now facing a maximum sentence of eight and a half years in prison.
