Jim Morrison Custom Framed Original 1970 Public Court Ordered Subpoena Letter

Original Historic Document

Custom frame measures approximately 18" x 22" in size and features a notarized court witness subpoena letter for the crimes committed by Jim Morrison during a concert of "The Doors" on March 1st, 1969.

It was the beginning of “The End” when Jim Morrison of “The Doors” performed one of the most talked about concerts in the history of rock music on March 1st, 1969 at the Key auditorium in Miami where he was charged with several crimes including exposing himself to a crowd of more than 10,000 fans.

This important “Witness Subpoena Document” - County Clerk Stamped and Notarized for Authenticity - was the centerpiece of the Dade County Florida Case #692355 where Morrison was ultimately found guilty of “Open Profanity” and “Indecent Exposure” on September 20th, 1970 and sentenced to 6 months in a Florida Prison.

While out on appeal bond, Morrison fled to France to avoid that prison sentence and never returned to the United States.

Stressed out and in fear of serving his pending prison time, Jim Morrison is found dead in his apartment on the morning of July 3rd, 1971 from heart failure due to a heroin overdose. Like many other Rockstars from that error who passed before their time, - including Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, and Janis Joplin - Jim Morrison died at the same age of 27.
