Jim Morrison May Get Indecent Exposure And Profanity Pardon

(Gibson) During his last few months in office, Florida Governor Charlie Crist is thinking about pardoning Jim Morrison, according to TheHill.com. The Doors lead singer was famously convicted of indecent exposure and profanity following a 1969 concert in Miami. Morrison died in 1971.

"Candidly, it's something that I haven't given a lot of thought to, but it's something I'm willing to look into in the time I have left," said Crist, who chose to run for a seat in the Senate (but lost) instead of running for re-election. "Anything is possible."

Morrison, a native Floridian, was charged with indecent exposure, profanity, drunkenness, and lewd and lascivious behavior after a Doors concert on March 1, 1969. Although even his bandmates said he was drunk, Morrison was cleared of that charge (as well as the lewd and lascivious charge), but convicted of the other two. Due to his 1971 death, the frontman never served any prison time. - more on this story
