A former Disney channel actor has been charged in federal court after police say he tried to have sex with a 13-year-old boy in Salt Lake City, Utah.
A federal grand jury in Utah returned an indictment, which charged Stoney Westmoreland with one count of coercion and enticement.
The maximum penalty is life in prison with a 10-year mandatory sentence.
Police say the 48-year-old was using the dating app Grindr to contact a person he thought was a 13-year-old boy.
Charging documents say Westmoreland was arrested Dec. 13 after he took a car to meet the boy so they could go to his hotel room.
He had previously sent explicit photos and asked for nudes photos in return.
He was in Utah to film the Disney Channel show "Andi Mack."
Westmoreland's other acting credits include "Scandal" and "Breaking Bad."
