Perp Walk: Antwon Tanner

I remember Antwon Tanner from his role in the 2005 movie, 'Coach Carter'. I thought he was a talented actor with a good future.

His future took a detour last week when a Brooklyn judge ordered him to report to prison on April 30 to spend three months in prison for dealing in stolen Social Security numbers. He'll serve five months in home detention after he's released.

He admitted selling more than a dozen Social Security numbers for $10,000 to an undercover agent.

He described the incident as "an embarrassment" to his family and fans.

His lawyer, Gregory Watts, blamed it on "stupidity" noting that Tanner suffered financial reversals and lost a $1-million house in California to foreclosure.

Sally - I did not know about the movie when it was in theatres or that it is coming out on DVD. I'm not a horror movie fan, so it is unlikely that I'll watch it ... but other villagers may enjoy seeing Tanner someplace other than a jail cell...
