Actor Who Sold Illegal Social Security Numbers Is Going to Prison
Antwon Tanner, the actor who was arrested last April for illegally selling Social Security numbers for $10,000, has changed his plea.
In a Brooklyn, NY federal court this morning, Antwon plead guilty to the charges.
Although the maximum for selling Social Security numbers is 10 years in jail and a $250,000 fine, his likely sentence under federal sentencing guidelines would be between 6 and 12 months, according to prosecutors. They said there was no evidence that the numbers were actually used to defraud anyone.
He is also under investigation in California in unrelated charges.
Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 20.
