YouTube DUI Confession: “I Killed a Man”

“My name is Matthew Cordle, and on June 22, 2013, I hit and killed Vincent Canzani,” says the 22-year-old in a YouTube confession.

An Ohio judge sentenced Cordle to six and a half years for aggravated vehicular homicide and driving under the influence. He will never drive again.

The victim’s daughter asked the judge for a maximum eight-and-a-half-year sentence. “My father got a death sentence and did nothing wrong,” Angela Canzani told the judge.

Cordle’s father said he was “disappointed, disgusted and heartbroken” at the choices his son made that night. He did not ask the judge for leniency.

Cordle’s video confession has gone viral, with nearly 2.5 million views.

Remember innocent victims like Vincent Canzani. Don’t drink and drive.
