QUINCY -- A Quincy man accused of letting his dog bite a neighbor in the face has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges.
Kerry D. Talburt II, 21, entered not guilty pleas to charges of home invasion, aggravated battery, reckless conduct and criminal trespass of a residence, and two counts of obstructing justice Tuesday in Adams County Circuit Court. His case was placed on the December jury trial docket.
The Quincy Police Department said officers were called to 1005 Jersey on July 8 in response to a report of a 30-year-old man who was bitten in the face by a dog. Police said Talburt had gotten into an altercation with his downstairs neighbor, and Talburt's dog got loose and bit the man.
Charging documents say Talburt put his thumb in one of the man's eyes and allowed the pit bull to bite him. They also alleged he gave false information to police.
Talburt is free on bond after posting $2,000.
