"One Tree Hill" Actor to Continue in New Season Despite Charges

"One Tree Hill" actor Antwon Tanner will remain on the show.

An actor who pleaded guilty in New York City to a Social Security number scheme will appear in at least the first several new episodes of the teen television drama "One Tree Hill."

CW network spokesman Paul McGuire says it's unclear what will happen later in the show's seventh season following Antwon Tanner's guilty plea.

"One Tree Hill" co-stars Tanner as high school basketball star-turned-coach Skills. It's in production in Wilmington, N.C. It returns Sept. 14.

The 34-year-old Tanner also appeared with Samuel L. Jackson in the 2005 movie "Coach Carter." He admitted in a Brooklyn federal court Friday he sold more than a dozen Social Security numbers for $10,000. He's expected to get as much as a year in prison at his Nov. 20 sentencing.

His lawyer hasn't returned telephone and e-mail messages sent Tuesday seeking comment.
