Rock legend Jim Morrison may get an official pardon for an indecent exposure conviction, 39 years after his death.

The governor of Florida Charlie Crist is convinced Morrison was not guilty of exposing himself at a raucous 1969 concert in Miami.

Morrison was lead singer for top 1960s rock group The Doors.

He was appealing against the indecent exposure and profanity conviction when he died in 1971 in Paris aged 27.

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