SOUTH KINGSTOWN, Rhode Island — A doctor found wandering around a stranger's home in Westerly at 4 a.m. has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

The Westerly Sun reports ( ) that Roy Main entered the plea Tuesday in Washington County Superior Court and was sentenced to one year probation. He had earlier been charged with felony breaking and entering.

Main has called the 2013 incident an honest mistake, and said he was trying to make a house call to check on a patient.

He walked into the home about a mile from the home he was looking for, and began calling out the name "Bill." That woke up the homeowners. One called police while the other hit and subdued the doctor.

Main agreed to pay $1,318 in restitution and not contact the homeowners.
