Shin Nakagomi pleaded guilty to all charges of game-fixing and fraud at the Banciao District Court in Taiwan on Tuesday. Nakagomi had previously admitted to one count of game-fixing but apparently changed his mind in attempt to get a suspended sentence (the prosecutors are seeking an 18-month prison term). Nakagomi also told the court that he wanted to return to Japan as soon as possible so that he could get back to taking care of his struggling family.
According to other reports, the CPBL is also planning on seeking a combined $11.5M in compensation from everyone that is convicted.
A final ruling will be made on 8/17.
