A Newell man was sentenced to six months of probation Friday for coercing a 17-year-old male to rob a Rostraver pawn shop.

Michael Salko, 27, pleaded guilty to a corruption of minors charge Friday before Judge Debra Pezze. He was ordered to not have contact with the teen or Cash for Gold on Don Street.

According to police, Salko took the teen with him on March 10, 2012 to exchange a necklace and earrings for $11 at the pawn shop. After the pair left, Salko helped the teen tie a bandana around his face and gave him a pair of gloves and a knife before the boy went back inside the store, police said.

A conspiracy charge was dismissed.
