'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.

A Hyde Park man is accused of forcing a teenage girl from the Alle-Kiski Valley to perform sex acts on him over a six-year period.

Johnny Harrison Orand, 47, of the 500 block of Murphy Street, is charged with 77 offenses, including multiple counts of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault and indecent assault.

State police said the assaults started in 2008 and ended in February.

Orand allegedly threatened to harm the girl's younger sister or her dog if the alleged victim didn't cooperate.

The rape and sexual assaults happened in houses in Irwin and Hyde Park.

Kiski Valley state police investigated and filed charges.

Orand was arraigned Wednesday. He was taken to the Westmoreland County jail Friday in lieu of $75,000 bond.

Orand is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Tuesday before Allegheny Township District Judge Cheryl Peck Yakopec.
