Sentencing Delayed For Ohio DUI Video Confessor
Sentencing has been continued for a man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of drinking.
The Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office says more time is needed as both prosecutors and defense attorneys submit additional information ahead of the sentencing of Matthew Cordle.
Sentencing before Franklin County Judge David Fais has been moved from Wednesday to Oct. 23.
The 22-year-old Cordle faces two to 8 1/2 years in prison, a $15,000 fine and loss of driving privileges for life.
Cordle pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in the June crash that killed Vincent Canzani of suburban Columbus.
Cordle’s online confession has been viewed more than 2.2 million times.
