Westmoreland pleaded guilty to using interstate facilities to transmit information about a minor and must surrender to prison no later than July 18.

He was also charged with allegedly coercing and enticement to engage in sexual activity with a minor, NBC reported.

Westmoreland responded to a profile on dating site Grindr, which was run by an undercover cop near the Disney Channel filming location, prosecutors said.

On December 13, the actor traveled to meet with the account in what he later described as roleplaying 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 may not stay.”

“Had it been a minor, he would have intended to leave,” Lewis said.

Disney released a statement announcing that Westmoreland was axed from the show Andi Mack, KSL reported.

“However, the risk of 10 years or more, particularly with a Utah jury and homosexuality, led to the decision to accept the plea deal,” Defense Attorney Lewis said.

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

He has to register as a sex offender for 25 years.

Court records indicate that after his release from prison, he will be limited to “only owning a personal computer and/or internet-enabled device.”

All devices will be randomly checked after his release, court documents show.

Aside from his Disney Channel role, Westmoreland has also appeared on the TV shows Scandal and Breaking Bad.
