Stoney Westmoreland, a 52-year-old actor playing the grandpa, Henry “Ham” Mack, in Disney’s show “Andi Mack,” has been sentenced to two years in prison for his crimes against children. He will also have to register as a sex offender for 25 years and be under supervised release for 10 years after prison.

Further, NBC News reported that Westmoreland will only be allowed to own “one personal computer and/or internet-capable device,” which will be “subject to random inspection.” He also must report any “electronic communication accounts, including email and social media handles.”

The actor was facing 10 years in prison for six separate felony charges, according to his attorney, but was able to receive a reduced sentence of two years for pleading guilty to “using interstate facilities to transmit information about a minor.”

In December of 2018, Westmoreland was busted for attempting to meet up for a tryst with what he thought was a 13-year-old boy not far from the filming location, Salt Lake City, Utah. The actor took a ride share to meet up with the boy with the intent to bring him back to his hotel room, as he told the driver ” to wait for him because he might not be staying.” That child, however, turned out to be a police detective.

Westmoreland found who he thought was a young teenager via the app Grindr, where homosexuals find each other to meet up. In addition to planning on meeting the teen in person, Westmoreland also sent inappropriately explicit photos via text message, and requested the same from the “child.” At that time, he was charged with one count of alleged coercion and enticement to engage in sexual activity with a minor.

After the arrest, Disney fired Westmoreland and issued a statement on the situation, saying, “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.”

Westmoreland’s attorney, Wendy Lewis, said that the suspect was evaluated by Dr. Fred Berlin of the Johns Hopkins Institue for the Study, Prevention, and Treatment of Sexual Trauma, who said the actor “demonstrated no pedophilic sexual interests.”

Because of this, Lewis said, “Mr. Westmoreland maintains that he believed the person he was speaking with was likely an adult engaging in role-play. Had there been an actual minor there when he arrived, he would have left. Due to the possibility of a minimum 10-year sentence and conservative Utah juries, Mr. Westmoreland agreed to plead to the lesser offense of transmitting information about a minor for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.”

However, charging documents say that Westmoreland said he knew he was meeting up with a 13-year-old child.
