‘I Killed A Man’ Video Confessor Pleads Guilty (Video)

Matthew Cordle, the 22-year-old Ohio man whose online video confession to having killed a man while driving drunk went viral earlier this month, formally pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated vehicular homicide.

The Associated Press adds that Cordle also pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

He could be sent to prison for 8 and half years.

Cordel recorded a video confessing to the crime. Many thought the video was staged.

A judge entered a not guilty plea for him and then sent it to the Franklin (Ohio) County docket system for random assignment to another judge. There was a dispute over whether Cordle’s attorneys wanted the original judge to commit to a less than maximum sentence (which the attorneys denied).

Cordle will be sentenced on Oct. 10. Watch his video confession below
