People all over the country are talking about a man who confessed online to killing a man while he was driving drunk.

Matthew Cordle was indicted by a grand jury in Ohio on Monday after he made his confession last week. The video has been viewed by over 1,000,000 people.

In the video, he admits to driving the wrong way down a highway after a night out drinking with friends. He said he killed a man when he collided with another vehicle.

Many people are talking about the video and are wondering what Cordle's motive behind the confession is. Alex Shook is an attorney in Morgantown and he said regardless of why people think he did it, the confession could help him with future court proceedings.

He said, "If someone steps forward and takes responsibility, I think typically judges and prosecutors will take that into consideration when they have some latitude with respect to the sentencing," said Shook.

In the video, Cordle also said he will accept full responsibility for his actions and he decided to make the video despite his lawyers telling him not to. At the end of the video he begs people not to drink and drive.
