I know Antwon Tanner as Michael from Moesha and The Parkers. The younger, paler teenagers who made up the core audience of One Tree Hill know him as Skills Taylor.
Those who reside in the state of New York’s prison facilities will soon know him as the pretty boy in the orange jump suit.
Tanner has pleaded guilty to selling a more than a dozen Social Security numbers for $10,000.
Granted, millions of people are on pace to start receiving smaller social security checks, but trust me when I say that would be the least of your worries if random stranger got a hold of your social security number.
Last Friday Tanner told a federal judge in Brooklyn that he was the middleman for the person who actually sold the numbers. Though he wouldn’t acknowledge how long he participated in the scheme it really doesn’t matter: Selling 16 Social Security numbers and three fake Social Security cards equals a lot of jail time.
The 34-year-old actor (who’s been playing a teenager forever it seems) has yet to be sentenced, but trust me it’s a wrap for him.
I’m glad that Countess Vaughn and Fredro Star have stayed out of trouble.
