HOUSTON (AP) — New York real estate heir Robert Durst has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief for exposing himself and urinating on candy at a Houston drug store.

The 71-year-old Durst wasn’t in court Tuesday when his lawyer, Chip Lewis, blamed a “medical mishap” for the incident last summer at the store near Durst’s residence.

Lewis, in a statement handed to reporters, said Durst “expressed his apologies” and has compensated the CVS drug store for damage.

He’ll also pay a $500 fine.

A decade ago, Durst was acquitted of homicide charges, calling it self-defense when he admitted to killing and dismembering his neighbor in Galveston.

Durst is the son of the late Seymour Durst, patriarch of the privately held billion-dollar Durst Organization that owns several New York City skyscrapers.
