'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 former Cranberry EMS executive director will serve four years' probation for sexually assaulting a 19-year-old man last year.

Steve F. Tedesco Jr., 31, was sentenced Monday by Butler County Judge Timothy McCune to probation. In September, Tedesco pleaded guilty to a single count of indecent assault of an unconscious person.

According to a court affidavit, Evans City police accused Tedesco of sexually assaulting the man during a party in the borough in March 2011. Prosecutors also charged Tedesco with providing the man and two other underage males with alcohol, but those charges, along with other sexual assault offenses, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

McCune ordered Tedesco to undergo counseling and perform 100 hours of community service.

Cranberry hired Tedesco as its EMS leader in 2010 after a national search. He was replaced last year after police filed charges.
