"I killed a man." - One year later...
On September 3rd, 2013, "because I said I would" released a confession video from a drunk driver named Matthew Cordle. Prior to any charges being pressed against Matthew, his message against drinking and driving would go viral around the world. After one year of incarceration, this video was filmed inside of prison. Watch the original video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmpK_EshSL4 Matthew received an approximately 50% longer sentence than the average conviction for the same crime in the same state with the same criminal history (none). Although some in the media have said his sentence was unlawfully high, Matthew promised himself that he would not appeal. His mission was to convince others not to make the careless and destructive decision to drink and drive. His sister updates the "Save Your Victim" Facebook page with Matt's thoughts from prison: http://www.facebook.com/saveyourvictim. Learn more about this nonprofit at http://www.saveyourvictim.com.

"Because I killed a man" - A COVID-19 message
In 2013, a 22-year-old named Matthew Cordle confessed on YouTube to killing a man while drunk driving. Drunk driving is clearly irresponsible, but COVID-19 is forcing us to reevaluate what reckless behavior really means. This new video from Matthew is about choosing isolation when it's the right thing to do. Prison can teach you a lot about what it takes to be alone. 1.)
