I didn't have a chance to get to this Wednesday; but, I'm back on for Johny again Thursday afternoon. We'll talk about it then!
Matthew Cordle is a 22-year-old man from Columbus, Ohio, who killed a man while driving drunk on June 22. He has since produced this dramatic video confessing to his crimes, generating nearly 2-million YouTube views and international attention. In his video, he promises to plead guilty and accept full responsibility.
Ron O'Brien, the Franklin County Prosecutor, says Cordle is not a professional actor and hopes his sincerity in the video will prevent others from committing the same tragedy. Still, O'Brien plans to seek the maximum sentence. Cordle's lawyers say he's prepared to accept the full punishment, but hopes the public remorse will lead to some leniency in sentencing. Martin Midian, his lawyer, says, "A heavy-handed sentence could send the wrong message that accepting responsibility is the wrong thing to do."
