I have worked with three men at three different companies, who have been arrested for soliciting a minor online. Thus, you would think by now other people would learn that if you try to do that, it is most likely a sting. I guess depraved people don’t care, so they still get caught with their pants, literally, down.
The latest busted person busted for this heinous crime is Stoney Westmoreland, 48, who plays the grandfather on Andi Mack. According to ABC 4 in Salt Lake City (where the Disney Channel is filmed), he was caught allegedly “chatting with a person on an internet app used for dating and meeting people for the ‘purpose of engaging sexual activity.’” Investigators told the news show that Westmoreland believed he was talking to a 13-year-old, sent them 4 pornographic photos, asked for oral sex and pictures in return. Yesterday, the Actor is said to have went to a hotel room to meet with the teen for sexual activity, only to be arrested.
He faces being charged with one count of enticing a Minor and four counts of dealing in materials harmful to a minor.
Westmoreland has barely been seen on the popular teen drama this season and now he will never been seen on the show again. The Hollywood Reporter says that he was fired from the show. A rep told the trade, “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.”
Peyton Elizabeth Lee, the actress, who Plays Andi Mack, is 14 years old as her co-star Sofia Wylie. Her male co-stars are 16 and 17. Therefore, they had no choice but to terminate his employment. I do not blame Disney Channel for putting their younger actors at risk because there is no way they could have known. At least they did the appropriate thing and fire him.
