Safe to say, this whole situation probably has gone less than ideally for him. If you’re going to confess, you have to be prepared to accept the consequences. Wasn’t that the whole point of the video?October 18, 2013 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #550795
Fuck this guy.October 18, 2013 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #550796
The guy makes a slick, articulate, full public confession and tells the world to throw the book at him. Then he hires these two weasely B-list attorneys to negotiate his sentence?

The daughter of a Gahanna man killed by a drunken driver who later confessed the crime in an online video is expected to offer her first in-depth comments about the accident. Angela Canzani’s appearance Wednesday is scheduled as part of the sentencing for Matthew Cordle, who faces eight years in prison for the June accident that killed Canzani’s father.

I is confused.
“Cordle’s lawyers say the former Army sharpshooter was sincere in his video plea and did not release the video with the intent of swaying a judge to give him a reduced sentence.”
…but that’s exactly what they’re asking for.October 23, 2013 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #550799
He got 6-1/2 years and lost his driver’s license for life.October 23, 2013 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #550800
Well, no possibility of shock parole either, so he’s going to do a lot of that time and he isn’t allowed to apply for judicial release for 5 years.October 28, 2013 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #550801
I am tired of this story…his sister set up a twitter account for him to post his thoughts from prison and he does an interview from prison just days after sentencing. Yeah, he really seems to have accepted responsibility…October 28, 2013 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #550802

Will the Son of Sam law come in to play here? It sounds like Mr. Cordle intends to become a spokesperson against drunk driving. Could he be compensated for it?July 29, 2014 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1032272
