I haven't been able to confirm this with any English sources yet, but it appears Shin Nakagomi has admitted to partial guilt in the CBPL scandal.  The prosecution is claiming that Nakagomi helped fix 5 games between 2008 and 2009 by using pitchers that were in on the scandal and that he received 1.5M TD in compensation.  Of these, Nakagomi is apparently admitting to helping fix one game in September 2009 and receiving 200,000 TD in compensation.  In addition to this, Nakagomi is claiming that he involved himself in the scandal because he wanted to help players that were being scared into cooperating with the gangs that were behind the fixes.
