Thanks to a report in UltimateClassicRock.com 

On that infamous night in Miami,  March 1st 1969, the night Jim Morrison and the Doors performed at the Dinner Key Auditorium when he allegedly exposed himself to the crowd. 


Almost 18 months later and Morrison was in court fighting back against charges of indecency and on Oct. 30, 1970, he was formally sentenced by the court for the act.

Morrison was ultimately convicted of two misdemeanor counts of open profanity and indecent exposure. He was sentenced to six months in prison and was levied a $500 fine. While he was appealing the conviction, Morrison was allowed to remain free and headed back to California to finish working with the rest of the Doors on the album L.A. Woman. From there he booked a flight to Paris, where he lived until his death on July 3, 1971.
