Doors' Jim Morrison to get pardoned in Florida

By: Associated Press, Brendan Farrington

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Doors singer Jim Morrison will get a posthumous pardon for an indecent exposure conviction in Florida. Charlie Crist, the state's governor, got a commitment for enough votes from other members of the state's Board of Executive Clemency to approve it. Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971. Thursday's meeting about the pardon will occur a day after the singer would have turned 67.
