'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 Fayette County man was charged Monday with sexually assaulting a female earlier this year when the girl was 15.

Kenneth Lee Miller, 27, of Herman Street in Uniontown is charged with statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and corruption of minors.

Trooper James Pierce filed charges with District Judge Wendy Dennis.

According to police, the girl, now 16, reported that she and Miller had sexual intercourse several times at her residence when she was 15.

Police said the investigation showed that Miller lied to the girl's mother about his own age in order to win her approval to see the girl.

The investigation also revealed that Miller and the girl exchanged sexually explicit pictures, police said.

Miller was arraigned and released on $50,000 bond.

He faces a preliminary hearing before Dennis on Sept. 18.
