Jim Morrison may get an official pardon for an indecent exposure conviction, 39 years after the rock legend's death.

Florida governor Charlie Crist is convinced that The Doors' frontman was not guilty of exposing himself at a raucous 1969 concert in Miami in the US.

The singer was appealing against the indecent exposure and profanity conviction when he died in 1971 in Paris at the age of 27.

Mr Crist said he will submit the star's name to his state's clemency board.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
