What is Stoney Westmoreland's net worth? 'Andi Mack' star who tried to lure minor for sex gets 2 years jail
The actor was arrested back in 2018 in Utah, where 'Andi Mack' was being filmed
Stoney Westmoreland, a former Disney actor who played the grandfather in the sitcom 'Andi Mack' was charged with attempting to lure a 13-year-old into sex. He has been charged with six felony counts involving the case and has been sentenced to two years in federal prison and ten years of supervised release. Originally the actor faced a ten-year sentence, but he wranlged for a lesser charge of using interstate facilities to transmit information about a minor.
Salt Lake City prosecutors said in December 2018, Westmoreland, was arrested for allegedly plotting sex with a minor. According to authorities, Westmoreland used the dating app, Grindr, to meet with a 13-year-old, with whom he shared explicit photos and on December 13, 2018, the actor took a ridesharing service to meet the boy to take him back to his hotel room. He was arrested that day, and Disney cut ties with him hours later. An affidavit was filed in June, 2022, in the 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City indicating that Westmoreland began communicating online with a user he believed was underage “on an Internet app used for dating and meeting people for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.”
The age of the alleged victim is the same as the central characters on 'Andi Mack' and the young actors who play them. As reported by TMZ, according to Westmoreland's lawyer Wendy Lewis he was using Grindr and was actually communicating with an undercover officer posing as someone else, and the doctor who evaluated Westmoreland concluded that Westmoreland thought the exchange was roleplay with an adult online and that Stoney didn't actually believe he was communicating with a 13-year-old.
Westmoreland is subjected to 10 years of supervised release following jail time and is required to comply with DNA collection and must register as a sex offender. Additionally, his computer devices will be randomly searched and he has to inform authorities of all of his electronic accounts, like email and social media. He is also not permitted to be in contact with people who are under 18 unless an adult is present.
Stoney has always been silent about his personal life. While we know that he is married to Sharon Pevon, there is limited information about their personal life or children.
