Confidential means private or personal. There is no provision that allows for the naming of a confidential informant (CI) after a case is over. If he took the case to trial, the law would allow the accused to face the accuser. He waived that right when he took the plea. Sometimes there is no CI, the prosecution is good at bluffing defendants into taking a deal saying there is a CI when none exists.
