The actor, who played his grandfather on the Disney show, was sentenced to two years in federal prison after answering an undercover police officer who pretended to be a 13-year-old boy on a dating app. He faces up to 10 years in prison for the most serious crime before confessing to a minor charge, said lawyer Wendy Lewis.
According to court records, Stoney Westmoreland (52) has admitted to using interstate facilities to send information about minors and must be released from prison no later than July 18.
The actor originally filed a lawsuit in 2018 after he allegedly booked a car to comply with what he considered a 13-year-old for sex while filming in Salt Lake City.
Westmoreland has been charged with a number of alleged coercions and requests for sex with a minor. In reality, however, he spoke to an undercover officer when he sent and requested pornographic photographs, according to his arrest certificate.
Westmoreland’s lawyer says the actor knew all along that he was talking to an adult and thought they were playing, according to TMZ.
Westmoreland was expelled from the cast of “Andi Mack,” who played in Utah shortly after his arrest. He played the role of Henry “Ham” Mack, the grandfather of the main character of the series.
