'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

AKRON, Ohio -- A fourth man facing sentencing in a failed bridge bombing plot in Ohio wants to withdraw his guilty plea if he doesn't get more lenient treatment than his co-defendants.

The attorney for 35-year-old Anthony Hayne of Cleveland filed the request late Tuesday night with federal Judge David Dowd in Akron. The judge met with attorneys Wednesday and postponed sentencing until Nov. 30.

The plea change request is conditional on whether Hayne gets a more lenient sentence than his co-defendants.

His attorney said Hayne's plea deal in return for cooperation could still mean a longer sentence than the eight- to 11-year terms handed down Tuesday to three co-defendants.

The FBI said no one was ever in danger. The device was a dud provided by an FBI informant.
