1970: Jim Morrison is found guilty in Miami, Florida, of misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure and profanity, while being acquitted on charges of "lewd and lascivious" behavior. The charges were related to a March 1, 1969, performance by The Doors in which a drunken and verbally abusive Morrison allegedly exposed himself for a brief instance. In October 1970, he would be sentenced to six months of hard labor and a $500 fine for public exposure and 60 days of hard labor for profanity. He was freed on a $50,000 bond while appealing the conviction, but died before the appeal could be heard.
