Gary from Chicago's a Convicted Felon

Well this is a record, for the 3rd day in a row we're STILL talking about the Oscars!

Oscar debacles that is.  If you watched the Oscars, than I'll assume you remember 'Gary from Chicago' and his fiancée Vicki who stole the show when Jimmy Kimmel brought their Hollywood tour group into the Oscars. 

He became an overnight sensation, the only problem is people started digging around on who he is... as it turns out, he's a convicted felon who'd just served 20 years in prison.

Apparently, the tourists really were just randomly picked up that day . . . because just two days before, he was still behind bars.

Gary's full name is Gary Allan Coe, and he served 20 years . . . for stealing PERFUME.  The harsh sentence is because it was his third strike.  He had been convicted of grand theft exceeding $400 a few years before the perfume.

And he also had a prior from 1975 for attempted rape, which is obviously a very serious offense.  He was a teenager at the time, and it required him to register as a sex offender.  But for whatever reason he wasn't sentenced in that case.

ut Gary's being up front about his past.  He says, quote, "If you don't give up on yourself, anything can happen.  People let public opinion crush them, but I served my time.  I'm a changed man."

Here's the HILARIOUS skit if you didn't see it!
