Stoney Westmoreland was recently sent to prison for two years on charges of trying to have s*x with a minor. He pleaded guilty to using interstate facilities to pass on information about a minor.
Westmoreland was initially charged with enticement of a minor online, with a potential 10-year prison sentence. The actor must comply with DNA collection and has to register as a s*x offender.
His electronic devices will be searched, and he will have to provide information about his electronic accounts to authorities. Westmoreland is not allowed to contact those under 18 unless they are accompanied by an adult.
He was arrested back in 2018 for seeking s*x with a minor. He used the dating app, Grindr, to meet a 13-year-old with whom he shared explicit pictures. However, it was later found that he was talking to an undercover officer pretending to be a minor.
Following his arrest, Disney fired Stoney Westmoreland and issued a statement about the same. Their representative said:
“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series Andi Mack, was arrested in Salt Lake City today. Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week.”
