YouTube DUI Confessor Pleads Guilty

The Ohio man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of heavy drinking pleaded guilty to the crime after an earlier non-guilty plea. Matthew Cordle, 22, showed up in a Columbus, Ohio courtroom on Wednesday wearing handcuffs and his jail jumpsuit. He told the judge he wanted to change his first plea, which he entered on Sept. 11, from not guilty to guilty. Cordle posted a YouTube video on Sept. 3 confessing to killing 61-year-old Vincent Canzani on June 22 while driving drunk.
