Jim Morrison Gets A Posthumous Pardon For "Indecent Exposure" Conviction

Better late than never!

On March 1, 1969, Jim Morrison was alive and well, performing a concert in front of his adoring fans in Miami. That evening, he reportedly dropped his pants, giving the crowd a very personal view and the stunt landed him in prison for six months. Before he died, he was attempting to appeal the conviction, as he had proof that he never actually exposed himself to his fans. Sadly, he never got the chance to defend himself.

Fast forward to 2007, when a huge Doors fan approached Gov. Charlie Crist and insisted that the case be reopened so that Jim could be pardoned. Fast forward to today, as the pardon has finally come to pass.

After several years and the reassurance of the surviving band members that it didn't happen, Gov. Crist, along with two other members, granted the pardon.

Wow. Guess we're just going to ignore the 100 or so pictures of evidence? Okay, cool!

    I hope that person is happy. They are the reason for his suicide!

    Actually, why are people so obsessed with someone showing what EVERY FUCKING PERSON HAS…A BODY!

    Thanks for reading what is real…now go read something that matters!

    what pictures showing proof? why in the world do you care so much about something you weren't even around for? jim morrison was an amazing musician with a very complex life story. try reading No One Here Gets Out Alive. it'll open your eyes.

    I love The Doors and everything Jim Morrison brought to music. I'm glad that Doors fan brought Morrison's charge and it was cleared. Too bad he had to spend 6 months in jail for that, and you commented on evidence of his flashing? Can you post the picture for us? I wouldn't mind seeing that :)

    I dare you to find those so called proof Perez, you are a douche cos there aren't any real proof at all, never did, all the pics that have been known so far don't really show nothing, that is why it has been debated ever since that Jim faked this with his hands and showed nuttin at all.



  5. 5

    Once again Perez fails to do even the most simple research. There is not a single photo showing Jim with his junk out on the night in question let alone "100 or so". It never happened and even if it did how would it affect your life at all?



  6. 6

    There were no pictures. None. It didn't happen. Geez, do some research, Perez, instead of just accepting your paycheck for plugging X factor.



  7. 7

    Who the fuck cares if they ignore the pictures? he's fucking dead. Ignoring them or not won't bring him back to life.



  8. 8

    You are such an ass Perez. Ya sure, you are playing the "I'm sassy now, not evil" but you and I both know that the real you is a total ass. The guy is an ICON, he is LONG DEAD. He never harmed anyone that day and since it happened 40 friggen years ago chances are a good portion of the people at the concert are also DEAD.

    Six months was a LONG sentence and he paid the price. Do you know how many people have done similar things and NOTHING happened to them?

    Let the guy rest in peace and let him have a pardon, guilty or innocent. For what the guy has given the world, it is the least we can do for him.

    Now please, go snuggle up with GagGag and Bieber and let them tell you everything is going to be ok.

    Re: suhMANTHA – Yeah… junkies life is always complex. lol



  10. 10

    6months for showing your junk (now cleared), when paedophiles and murderers can walk free in a couple of years. (Not all but many do)

    It's about time he got his named cleared.



  11. 11

    Ok first this is old news, second I wonder how many tax payers dollars went into giving a dead junkie musician a pardon for showing his balls to a bunch of drugged out hippies. Fuck Jim Morrison and his bath tub



  12. 12

    I'm listening to The Doors right now. Cool band.



  13. 13

    the governor or president can pardon anyone regardless of evidence or conviction. nixon anyone??



  14. 14

    morrison never went to jail, he went to trial and was in the process of appealing when he exiled himself to france….since you know so much about ignoring evidence perez, perhaps you can show us where you found the fact of six months of incarceration.



  15. 15

    as many have pointed out, your facts are simply wrong, but on another level, how can you condemn an artist for using nudity in performance when your own success is inextricably linked to nude photos of celebrities?



  16. 16

    There are no pictures, dumb ass!



  17. 17

    Fuck you. Dont post my comments…



  18. 18

    Agreed, Morrison is a douche and is only famous for being a dead, strung out junkie. You can have him, baby boomers.

    Re: Realness – Suicide? Really Realness? You really aren't sure how he really died, are you, I mean, really.

    I wonder, sometimes, in what fantasy land Perez lives.
    He is so used to lying and fabricating that he's starting to believe what he write.

    Morisson was exonerated a few years after the incident.
    There never was any photo.
    He never went to prison.



  21. 21

    another great use of taxpayer money.

    Of all the pictures from the concert, none showed any nudity.
    Just because some people say something happened doesn't mean it did happen.
    The trial was unfair.
    It was important to Jim that this be exonerated.
    In his memory, and for his family, this was the right thing to do.

    I Love Jim Morrison and the Doors!! I think it's really cool that this happened. How come Billie Joe Armstrong was allowed to pull down his pants like 5 times at a Green Day concert I went to when I was 15 and no one cared? I guess times have really changed …



  24. 24

    It is just irresponsible of you Perez-the way you throw things out there with no research whatsoever. ALL the photos from that infamous concert show evidence that Morrison DID NOT expose himself. Also, Morrison was facing jail time but he 'landed in prison for six months'. He didn't live that long. It's pathetic how you relay news-and then throw your own uninformed spin on it.
