Tanner Pleads Guilty In Social Security Scam

ONE TREE HILL star ANTWON TANNER has pleaded guilty to selling Social Security numbers.
The actor, who plays Skills on the teen U.S. TV drama, told a federal judge in Brooklyn, New York on Friday (21Aug09) he had sold more than a dozen of the identification numbers for $10,000 (£6,700).
Tanner maintained he was a "middleman" in the scheme, selling official details provided by an unnamed source.
Prosecutors revealed the star is also under investigation in California, although the reason for that probe was not given.
In April (09), authorities charged the 34 year old after he sold 16 Social Security numbers and three fake Social Security cards to undercover Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in a sting operation.
The Coach Carter star faces up to a year in prison. He is due to be sentenced on 20 November (09).
