'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 hearing for Susan Sundo, the former Sharpsburg Recreation Committee president accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy, was continued last Wednesday and she was ordered not to have contact with the boy.

A preliminary hearing is now scheduled for March 27, at 10 a.m. at District Judge Elissa Lang's court in Sharpsburg.

Sundo, 45, of Sharpsburg, is charged with corruption of minors, statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor.

She was the head of the Sharpsburg Recreation Committee but was removed from her post Jan. 8 after charges were filed.

David J. Shrager, her attorney, said the hearing was continued to allow for more time to prepare for the case.

He described Sundo as an “ordinary, everyday housewife.”

“She has never had any contact with the law whatsoever,” Shrager said.

Shrager said Sundo's family has been supportive of her.

“Her family has rallied around her,” he said.

Shrager said he was unsure of the status of her relationship with her husband.

Sundo did not comment as she left the district court office.
