Broome Men Accused of Arranging Trip for Sex With Pa. Teen
Two Broome County men are accused of trying to set up a rendezvous for one of them to have sex with a child in Pennsylvania.
The Wilkes Barre Times Leader reports authorities arrested 42-year-old Michael Robinsky of Vestal May 8 when he showed up to meet who he thought was a 15-year-old boy in Luzerne County.
53-year-old Robert Strait of Endicott is accused of being the one to contact the undercover detective that the men thought was a teen.
According to the report, Robinsky faces three counts of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of conspiracy to commit unlawful contact with a minor, one count of criminal solicitation and one count of criminal use of a communications facility.
Straight, who allegedly gave Robinsky the cell phone number of the undercover officer whom he thought was a teenaged boy, is charged with felony counts of trafficking minors, promoting the prostitution of a minor and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor.
The Wilkes Barre Times Leader reports Strait was arrested by Broome County Sheriff’s Deputies after Robinsky told authorities he had been put into contact with a person he knew was supposed to be an underaged individual by the Endicott man. He’s awaiting extradition to Luzerne County.
