Antwon Tanner, who currently plays the character Skills on “One Tree Hill,” surrendered Thursday in Brooklyn Federal Court to face shocking charges of allegedly selling bogus Social Security numbers and cards after he was caught in a sting operation.
Tanner, 34, has no prior criminal record. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
“It’s really sad,” said a source familiar with the investigation. “He’s got a real career.”
Tanner pleaded not guilty at the arraignment and was released on a $250,000 bond. He and his defense lawyer refused to answer reporters’ questions.
