The Las Ve­gas Re­view Jour­nal re­ported that pros­e­cu­tors in New York told a fed­eral judge by let­ter Fri­day that the un­named agent con­fessed to be a source for The Wall Street Jour­nal and The New York Times re­gard­ing the case in­volv­ing Las Ve­gas gam­bler Wil­liam “Billy” Wal­ters.

Wal­ters had asked the judge to deter­mine the source of the leaks and whether any­one should be pun­ished.

The let­ter said the mat­ter has been re­ferred to over­sight of­fices in the U.S. Jus­tice Depart­ment and the FBI.
