TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist says he's still thinking about a pardon for long-dead rocker Jim Morrison, a Florida native who died nearly 40 years ago in a Paris bathtub at age 27.
Crist said Tuesday he wanted to discuss that possibility with Cabinet members before formally taking up the issue. It would require the governor to get another vote from the four-member panel.
Morrison was convicted of exposing himself on stage during a raucous 1969 concert in Miami and was appealing that conviction when he died.
Morrison, who was born in Melbourne in 1943, became be one of the top rock 'n roll acts in the late 1960s as the lead singer and lyricist for a group named the The Doors. Their 1967 single, "Light My Fire," was a huge hit.
