EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man found mentally fit to stand trial on charges that he molested a puppy is waiting for court officials to decide if he's a sexually dangerous person.

The (Alton) Telegraph reports 43-year-old Terry Davis has pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual conduct with a female Rottweiler puppy.

The former Alton man has been undergoing evaluations over whether he's sexually dangerous. If he is deemed sexually dangerous during civil proceedings, he could be confined in prison until he no longer is considered dangerous.

A court-appointed psychologist has concluded that Davis isn't sexually dangerous, but another psychologist hasn't yet weighed in.

Davis has a record of sex offenses dating to 2003.

Authorities say the dog became aggressive after the alleged incidents and had to be euthanized.
