'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.

The Allegheny County jury deliberating the fate of a former corrections officer at State Correctional Institution in Woods Run is expected to announce a verdict Thursday morning.

Assistant District Attorney Jon Pittman said the jury will be ready to announce its decision on the 80 counts against Harry Nicoletti, 61, of Coraopolis by 9:30 a.m.

Nicoletti is accused of targeting inmates convicted of sex crimes involving minors.

The trial before Common Pleas Judge David R. Cashman lasted 11 days. The jurors began deliberations Friday afternoon.
