A man was arrested after he chose to molest a puppy rather than a child.
The 44-year-old man pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual conduct with a female Rottweiler puppy.
Terry Davis of Illinois, a convicted child sex offender, underwent a psychiatric evaluation to see if he was mentally fit to stand trial.
A court psychiatrist has ruled that Davis is fit to stand trial for performing three sex acts with his roommate’s 5-month-old Rottweiler named Lucy.
Davis, who was caught in the act by his roommate, moved into the dog owner’s apartment a couple of weeks prior to the incident.
He is now waiting for psychiatrists to decide whether he is a sexually dangerous person. If he is determined to be sexually dangerous to the public, than he could be held in jail until he is no longer considered dangerous.
Davis has a history of sex offenses dating back to 2003. According to the Illinois Sex Offender Registry, Davis was 33 years old at the time of the incident and his victim was 16 years old.
Authorities said that the dog became aggressive after the alleged sexual abuse and had to be euthanized.
