ACCUSED ROCK SINGER TO FACE THE MUSIC Miami Public Library Florida Collection November 7 1969
The rock singer who’s accused of indecent exposure during a Dinner Key concert will return next week to face the music.
Attorney’s for Jim Morrison, The Doors vocalist and self proclaimed “King Of Orgasmic Rock” made a surprise appearance in Criminal Court today to promise his return.
They came to insure that Morrison can be released on bond as soon as he surrenders. Judge Murray Goodman set bond at $5,000.
“He’s ready to face the music,” said Miami lawyer Robert Josefsberg.
Josefsberg was accompanied by Los Angeles Attorney Max Fink, who promised “to fight all the way” to clear Morrison “of these ridiculous charges.”
Morrison is charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, indecent exposure, open profanity and drunkenness. The charges grew out of a Dinner Key Auditorium show before 10,000 Dade County teenagers last March.
Extradition proceedings had been under way for several months in California to force Morrison’s return to Miami.
