According to MTV.com, Tanner sold more than 12 Social Security numbers to an undercover agent for $10,000. His lawyer blamed the unwise dealings on "stupidity" and said that he "suffered financial reversals and lost a $1-million house in California to foreclosure."

A judge in Brooklyn has said that the actor will have to report to jail on April 30, but One Tree Hill is scheduled to return on January 17. As for how Tanner's departure will affect the show, no one over at the CW has commented yet.
