ODESSA - A former Odessa firefighter avoids jail time for breaking into a home by making a plea deal.

37-year-old Richard Kilgore plead guilty to a lesser charge of criminal mischief.

Kilgore admitted to being drunk; and thought the home was his.

That home turned out to belong to former Medical Examiner Office Investigator Carl Rogers.

Kilgore says he thought the locks had been changed on him and broke in.

If he violates his probation, Kilgore will end up in jail.
