According to a 2011 report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services the percentage of DUI-related traffic deaths in Ohio was 31%.

Franklin County prosecutor Ron O'Brien said that Cordle was a suspect when the police initially looked into the case but hadn’t been charged until his public confession, according to local news reports

While a vehicular homicide remains one of the most egregious DUI case in almost all US states, Cordle’s YouTube post will serve as a ‘strong testament’ to the driver’s character, the persecutor said.
