STONEY Westmoreland, known for his performances in Disney Channel’s Andi Mack, has pleaded guilty following an arrest for child molestation.

The actor who played a grandfather on the Disney show was sentenced to two years in federal prison after responding to an undercover cop posing as a 13-year-old boy on a dating app.

Westmoreland pleaded guilty to using interstate facilities to transmit information about a minor and is due in jail no later than July 18.

He was also charged with one count of coercion and incitement to engage in sexual activity with a minor, NBC reported.

Westmoreland responded to a profile on dating site Grindr that was operated by an undercover cop near where the Disney Channel was filming, prosecutors said.

On December 13, the actor traveled to meet the account in what he later said was role play that went too far.

Defense attorney Wendy Lewis said Westmoreland asked the driver who took him to the meeting to “wait for him because he might not stay”.

“If it had been minor, he planned to leave,” Lewis said.

Disney released a statement announcing that Westmoreland had been removed from the Andi Mack show, KSL reported.

“The risk of 10 years or more, however, particularly with a Utah jury and homosexuality, led to the decision to accept the plea,” defense attorney Lewis said.

The actor is scheduled to serve two years in federal prison and will then be on supervised release for another 10 years.

He will have to register as a sex offender for 25 years.

Court records show he will be limited to “owning only one personal computer and/or internet-enabled device” once released from prison.
