(CNN) — Matthew Cordle, an Ohio man who confessed in an online video that he killed a man in a June 22 drunken-driving crash, was given a six-and-a-half-year sentence Wednesday.

His driving privileges also were suspended for life. He pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide and driving under the influence.

The maximum prison sentence would have been eight and a half years.
